    wow, you really have to jump through hoops to be a married Catholic! I have enough trouble finding my birth certificate, I don't even know where to begin to look for a confirmation certificate! Thank goodness I am a Methodist or we would be out of luck!
    My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

Our preist here said he'd let it slide, but he's not sure the church in Mexico would.

    By Pre-Cana, do you mean the marriage class they send you to? Yes we did that in October. It was kind of fun! We just need all our paperwork (including our civil marriage) and 3 more meetings with our Priest, them we are free to get married, lol.
    hmmm we were told we didnt need the first communion certificate, but maybe i should get two copies just in case... yeah precana is the marriage class. we have ours on march 1st. we have 2 more meetings with our priest here. the church in mexico didnt even tell us which documents we need yet, but when his mom asked the priest where she got his baptism cert from, they told her baptism and confirmation should be enough.

    Amy, did you take the compatibility survey yet? That was actually really fun!
    we took the scantron compatibility test a little over a week ago. ours was geared toward catholics marrying catholics, and the last section was for couples living together, and the last couple questions were like "so you know living together and not being married is a sin right?" and you mark agree, disagree or uncertain. LOL. i could NOT roll my eyes any farther back in my head on that one.

      Okay I have such a crazy question to ask you...we really want to get married by a Catholic priest, and I see you live in Chicago, as do we and I was wondering what parish your priest is from-what I'm getting at do you think if we flew him down to Cabo would he marry us? We are new to our parish and don't think our priest will marry us in Cabo-

      I don't want to do the traditional wedding here in Chicago b/c my father passed away and I just think it would be too emotional so thats why we geared twds a destination wedding where its close family and friends and people who understand what I'm going thru and why I decided to have a more intimate wedding-

      Thanks for any help!

        Maura that just plain sucks. Can you bribe the priest or is the time slot really gone?
