A Celebration of Convalidation

February 8, 2025 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


If you and your spouse desire holy matrimony in the Catholic Church, you are invited to convalidate your marriage with Bishop Mark O’Connell and Bishop Cristiano Barbosa. A Celebration of Convalidation is an opportunity for couples married outside of the Church to enter into a marriage covenant in the Catholic tradition.

Families and friends are invited to attend. The ceremony will include the Liturgy of the Word and the Celebration of Matrimony. All are welcome to attend the regularly scheduled 4:30 PM Mass prior to the ceremony.

  • Download the Convalidation Info for Parishes 2024 form for the priest or his delegate preparing you for marriage.
  • When the preparation is complete, ask the parish to mail the relevant documents in a marriage envelope by Jan. 17, 2025 directly to:
    • Attn: Family Life/Convalidation Ceremony  |  Pastoral Center  |  66 Brooks Dr. Braintree, MA 02184
  • Once the paperwork has been received, we will follow up to confirm that we received your documentation, share parking information, etc.
