Eligible for sacraments

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: I need your advice:

We have a young woman here at the parish who was in the RCIA class. She did not go to the Rite of Election last year as she is divorced, not annulled and in a relationship (with the sweetest guy who was only 38!) Last week, he was killed in a bicycle accident. Is she now ‘eligible’ for confirmation and Eucharist?


A: This is heartbreaking. Yes, she is eligible for sacraments. And for a whole lot of pastoral care. God bless you for doing what you can to assist her.
