There’s a lot of talk these days about the definition of marriage and what the Catholic Church teaches on marriage. As Catholics, we must be equipped with knowledge in order to stand for truth. Because of the nature of this quiz, you will find direct quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the explanation of each of the correct answers. We’ve done so deliberately to avoid even the suggestion that our answers are matters of opinion on the part of Catholic Link authors. These teachings are not opinions; they are truths our faith so beautifully and eloquently has spoken with love, from the beginning.

What is the Challenge?
Annulments, some say it’s just “Catholic divorce.” Others believe that if you simply pay enough, the Church will “say” you were never married. But what is the truth?

What is the Online Workshop About?
In the Online Workshop we’re going to be discussing what for many people is a confusing topic: Marriage annulments. These are the points that Fr Bateman will explain:
• The Marriage bond – how it is contracted and what is required • What an annulment really says and does • Why the Church can “annul” non-Catholic marriages • What an annulment DOESN’T do • How the process works • How Pope Francis altered the process • Then we’ll have some time for your questions
