Reader Question – My fiancee and I are both catholics and we are getting married this summer. We decided for various reasons to have the ceremony performed at the reception site, hopefully outdoors (weather permitting). We understand that this marriage will not be recognized by the church, but are wondering if a catholic priest is still allowed to officiate the ceremony? According to legal statute, any clergy member of any faith can officiate a wedding in the state. Are there any restrictions within the catholic faith that would preclude our priest from marrying us under these circumstances?
