Synod Agrees Remarriage Scheme For Divorcees

Marriage of divorced people in the Church of Ireland churches is to be regularised. A new bill providing for a service of preparation to be held before the wedding, was approved by an overwhelming majority of the General Synod of the Church in Dublin in May.

This bill calls for a private service, conducted by a priest at which the couple recognises that a previous marriage promise has failed. The liturgy includes an act of penitence.
