Parish Needs

Annulment Case Sponsor

Case Sponsors are trained by the Archdiocesan Tribunal and are available to confidentially assist those seeking a declaration of nullity of a former marriage. Case sponsors work in the parish setting, providing assistance to the Pastor, the Tribunal, and most importantly, to Parishioners submitting a case to the Metropolitan Tribunal of Atlanta. There is a lot of misinformation concerning annulments. Case Sponsors provide some answers, emotional support, positive reassurance, and practical assistance throughout the process. For confidential information or to volunteer, contact:
