MATRIMONIA MIXTA

Definition

Apostolic letter of Pope Paul VI, setting down the definitive norms for mixed marriages. While allowing Catholics to marry non-Catholics, with dispensation, before a non-Catholic clergyman, they are nevertheless required to see to it that all their children are reared in the Catholic faith (March 31, 1970).
