Q&A

My annulment was denied, but may I still receive the Eucharist if my conscience tells me the marriage was invalid?

Question:

I was married in the Church, later divorced, and then I remarried. I just received word that my annulment request was denied. However, my deacon told me that even though my annulment petition was denied by the diocesan tribunal, if I believe in good conscience that my first marriage was not valid, I can go to my priest and he can give me permission to return to the Eucharist. Is this true? Please provide documentation. <br />
