Office of the Tribunal
The Marriage Tribunal is an extension of the Bishop’s juridical ministry to the people of the Diocese of Pueblo. This office is staffed by priests and lay persons trained in Canonical Law together with their support staff.


The Tribunal is a court of Canon Law (Church Law) for the diocese. All matters relating to Church Law are handled by the Tribunal. This includes many types of cases such as privilege cases, dispensations and Canonical questions, but the most commonly known work is marriage nullity cases. The ministry of the Marriage Tribunal is one part of the Church’s effort to offer healing and hope.
