WEDDINGS IN ST.ISIDORES

 

 

St.Isidores College provides for Catholic Marriages for Irish couples.  Arrangements should be made with the community here, at:    col.isidoro@gmail.com 

Notice would need to be at least four months ahead.  Normally, the sacrament is conducted in the irish or english language, but the partial inclusion of other languages can be arranged. 

As the Church is small, with accommodation for about one hundred people, we only accept one marriage in any one day.   We do not have marriages on Sundays or Mondays.

Most of the arrangements for a marriage are taken care of by the couples themselves at home.  The following requirements should be noted:

CHURCH DOCUMENTS

1.    PRE-NUPTIAL ENQUIRY FORMS (to be completed by your parish priest or his delegate)

2.    BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATE (must be new, issued no earlier than six months prior to the wedding)

3.    LETTER OF FREEDOM  (from your Bishop)

4.    DISPENSATION FROM ANY IMPEDIMENTS TO THE MARRIAGE IF THEY EXIST (e.g. if one of the couples is not baptized or  belongs to another church.)

When all the above documents are ready, the priest of your parish should send them to the Bishop of your diocese, with a request that a NULLA OSTA be granted for the celebration of the wedding in Rome.  The papers should then be forwarded directly to St.Isidores College by the Bishop's office. 

CIVIL DOCUMENTS

Irish citizens residing in Ireland must apply to the Consular Office of the Department of Foreign Affairs (Dublin or Cork) for a Certificate of No Impediment (Nulla Osta).  The Department will send the appropriate application forms, which should be completed and returned to the Department, who will forward them in due course to the Irish Embassy in Rome, and thus to St.Isidores College. 

Be assured of a welcome if you decide to have your wedding here.  The financial contribution we expect is Eur.four hundred (400.00)

January 15, 2016.  A group of Irish and Italian people, meeting in the University Roma Tre to commemorate the centenary of the Rising in Dublin in 1916, finished their session with a visit to St.Isidores, where Micheal gave them a brief history of the house, where there were readings from writings of some participants in the Rising, and some traditional Irish music presented by Comhaltas Ceoltoiri na Roimhe.
