Other Areas of Canon Law

We are willing to work with people on a number of different issues that arise from time to time whether you are a lay person, a member of the hierarchy, a consecrated person, or work in a parish or chancery. Since each situation is different, we cannot exhaustively list all the areas in we can work with you. We can assist in writing employee handbooks from a canonical perspective, form policies and procedures that pass canonical muster, and give advice and represent clients in various ecclesiastical circles. Some frequently asked questions and services we provide include:

  • Sacramental access issues
  • Church closures
  • Parish employee rights
  • Liturgical regulations
  • Preparing an entity or work for possible ecclesiastical approval
