CONGREGATION FOR THE SACRAMENTS AND DIVINE WORSHIP
Established in 1975, it has two sections: one to deal with the sacraments and the other with divine worship. It also has two special commissions. One of these handles dispensations from nonconsummated marriages, and the other decides on claims of doubtful holy orders.
