Tribunal's New Competency
As of February 1, 2016, the Tribunal of the Diocese of Bridgeport was given faculties for granting dispensations and to process marriage files that need to be sent to other dioceses. Current dispensation forms are still valid. In case of emergency, if you cannot reach Msgr. Dariusz J. Zielonka, Judicial Vicar, or Rev. Arthur C. Mollenhauer, Adjutant Judicial Vicar, please contact Msgr. Thomas W. Powers, Vicar General, for required dispensations. As always, please plan well in advance and submit your dispensation requests early. Thank you.
