When Boris got married in a Catholic church earlier this year (despite having been divorced twice), we were told that his first two marriages weren't recognised by the Catholic Church because neither had taken place in a Catholic church, so to them he had never been married before.


Another btw. Mr J. became the incumbent of 10 Downing Street on 24th of July, feast day of St. Boris of Russia. I kid you not.  ;D  Votes in his first mayoral election were being counted on 2nd May 2008, feast day of St. Boris of Bulgaria. This puts a new slant on the expression "friends in high places".  ;D

My next challenge now, due to this new information, is to discover what denomination my mother and her siblings were baptised in.

She has been dead a while now so I can't ask her and I'm certain she didn't know her father was a catholic. I always assumed that my maternal grandparents had a "mixed-marriage" Him C of E, her catholic. Since my siblings and I were baptised C of E I thought it was because my grandfather had made the decision that my mum would be too.

Now, knowing that both were catholic, it seems more likely that my mum and my aunts and uncles would be baptised catholic as well.

My grandparents were married at Our Lady of La Salette and Saint Joseph Church, Bermondsey. The records for the years of my mum's birth are not on line yet so I think I'll have to contact the priest and see if he has a baptismal record for her.

I emailed the Catholic church of La Salette to ask if my mother had been baptised there.

A very helpful priest replied that he couldn't find my mum's baptism but could find one of her younger brothers. He is now looking for the baptism records of her other siblings. He is certain if my grandparents were both Catholics when they married, there children would be too.

I never knew my mum and her siblings were Catholics - they certainly weren't practicing ones, I just wonder if my mum knew!

Thatís good to hear that the priest was helpful.  ;)
I hope he can find your mumís baptism too. It might depend on where they were living if there are a  couple of churches in the neighbourhood.
