The Office of Canonical Services deals with more than marriage annulments, and we hope to be a helpful resource to parishes regarding the policies and procedures to be followed in the Diocese of San Bernardino. The answers to many common pastoral questions can be found in some of the following resources:

Marriage Forms for Marriage Preparation in parishes

Parish Handbook of Canon Law for Parish staffs and ministers.

Diocesan Policies regarding marriage and Mass stipends.

List of Baptisms considered valid and invalid by the Catholic Church.

Guidelines for Christian Funerals in the Diocese of San Bernardino.

Policies and Procedures for Parish Sacramental Registers 

Annulment Flow Chart to determine which 'type' of annulment a person needs
