My fiancée has fallen in love with a wedding venue and a nearby Cathedral that is part of the New Church.
- Is this the church you are talking about?
The New Church (or Swedenborgianism) is the name for several historically related Christian denominations that developed as a new religious group, influenced by the writings of scientist and Swedish Lutheran theologian Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772).
Catholics have to marry in the Catholic Church if they wish to receive the many life-long blessings that help them throughout their marriage. The New Church is not the Catholic Church.
A couple that marries outside of the Church will never be able to have their children baptized Catholic because they have chosen to raise them in a different church (the New Church) with a different set of beliefs.
