I have two friends, neither of whom are Catholic, planning on getting married in a few months. The only minister that they know and with whom they are close happens to be a Catholic priest. They asked me if a Catholic priest could marry non-Catholics outside of the Church. I said that legally, as a minister, he could, but the question is would he. Even though the Catholic Church recognizes other Christian and civil marriages as fully valid, can he help to make a “non-sacramental” marriage?
