Prayer

Your word is a lamp for my steps,
a light for my path.
I have sworn firmly
to uphold your just rulings.

I have suffered so much,
give me the life you promise.
Receive, Lord, all that I say,
and teach me your wisdom.

Though danger stalks,
I will never forget your law.
Though the wicked set traps,
I will not stray from you.

Your laws are my heritage,
the joy of my heart for ever.
I am determined to obey
for a lasting reward.

— Psalm 119: 105-112

 

Our mission statement

We, the Metropolitan Tribunal of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, called to share in the prophetic and reconciling ministry of Jesus and the Church, strive to:

  • Uphold the Gospel teaching on the sanctity and dignity of marriage
  • Safeguard the rights of individuals and the common good
  • Seek truth and justice in all judicial matters.

We do this primarily by investigating and judging in accord with the procedural law and jurisprudence of the Church the cases which come properly to us, notably, cases of nullity or dissolution of marriage.

Above all, we commit ourselves to act with compassion, charity and concern for the salvation of souls -- the supreme law of the Church.
