The University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Canon Law, answering the call of Veritatis Gaudium and the Instruction on the Reform of the Matrimonial Process, organized a seminar on Matrimonial Law with Rev. Fr. Julius Paul Factora, O.P., J.C.D., as resource speaker. It was held on October 24, 2019, at the UST Martyrs’ Hall of the Ecclesiastical Faculties.
The seminar was attended mainly by parish priests and their vicars who are the frontliners in addressing the queries and concerns of their parishioners regarding marriage.
The seminar is the Faculty’s way of making the Holy Father’s apostolic letter Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus and the reforms on the matrimonial tribunal process that he introduced relevant and known to the clergy. This seminar is the first of two parts, and another seminar is set to discuss the new process of declaration of nullity for those who want to become familiar with the procedure.
