Serving the Church in Texas

Diocesan pastoral resources: Marriage forms, end-of-life directives, ecumenical guidelines

Resources for Catholics seeking marriage, guidance on end-of-life situations and ecumenical activities are provided in collaboration with dioceses in the state. Always confirm with your local diocesan offices or your deacon or pastor before using these resources.

Marriage forms

These marriage forms are for (arch)diocesan use and not all (arch)dioceses in Texas use this set of forms. The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops is posting these forms as a courtesy for those (arch)dioceses that use these forms and would like to be able to access them online. Couples seeking to be married must use the forms and the process of their local parish and (arch)diocese.

End-of-life directives

These forms, developed by the Diocese of Dallas, assist Catholic residents of Texas in receiving end-of-life care in accordance with the Catholic Faith. They can also serve as guides for conversations with your loved ones about end-of-life care decisions.
