Mariage between a Catholic and non-Christian

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Section III of the Order of Celebrating Matrimony denotes “If a Marriage takes place between a Catholic and a catechumen or a non-Christian, the rite given below (nos. 118-143) is to be used, with the variations provided for different situations.”  This appears to be outside mass … can a non-Christian and Catholic get married inside of Mass?


A: In my book Inseparable Love I wrote, “It is understood, however, that the marriage between a Catholic and a non-Christian may not take place during Mass.” Since then, a canonist has told me it probably could.

I suggest you check with a local canonist.
