  • I heard from someone in the Novus Ordo that you have to had at least received your First Communion and be Confirmed in order to be able to marry.

    Is there any truth in this?

  • No, but....

    If you are a Catholic it would be normal practice to receive the Sacraments in the order that they are to be given. But then, of course, in the NO just about nothing is "normal".

    First Baptism. It is prerequesitive for all other sacraments.

    If Marriage is to be lived according to the Will of God, one needs the grace of the Sacraments.

    Are you thinking of a particular couple? Or is this a general question?

  • Not many people on this forum will be well versed in the requirements of the Novus Ordo, I would call your local parish and ask them.

  • From the code of Canon law;

    Can.  1065 §1. Catholics who have not yet received the sacrament of confirmation are to receive it before they are admitted to marriage if it can be done without grave inconvenience.

    §2. To receive the sacrament of marriage fruitfully, spouses are urged especially to approach the sacraments of penance and of the Most Holy Eucharist.

  • I don't know about the Novus Ordo, but it's definitely true in the Catholic Church.

    Of course, it doesn't touch on the validity of the marriage.  But it is the law of the Church nevertheless.
