The Tribunal of the Catholic Church

The Diocese of Parramatta has a Tribunal office of the Interdiocesan Tribunal of Sydney (NSW and the ACT), which is responsible for the preparation and assessment of all cases (marriage and otherwise) presented to it by people who reside within Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains. It prepares formal nullity cases for the Interdiocesan Office as well as other types of cases.

Much of the work of the Tribunal centres on annulment applications and all questions in relation to this matter should be directed to the Tribunal. However, the Tribunal is also involved in a variety of other areas where advice is required on issues relating to Canon Law such as: 

  • Sacraments
  • Temporal Goods of the Church, especially finance and property
  • Statutes for diocesan and parochial organisations
  • Relationships between the Latin and Eastern Catholic Churches
  • Advice to the bishop, clergy and laity on general canonical matters

The Tribunal does not offer counselling or marriage guidance, however, support for families is available through services such as Catholic Care, the Diocese’s social welfare agency.
