Office of the Chancellor

Official Notary of the Archdiocese, signing off on all official archdiocesan documents ensuring that acts of the curia as well as historic documents are gathered, arranged, and safeguarded in the archdiocesan archives. Letters of good standing for lay people and the request for approval of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are processed through the Chancellor’s Office.

Letters of good standing for Priests are now provided by the Office for Canonical Services. Requests for dispensations and permissions in marriage preparation cases should be addressed to Msgr. Terence Nolan’s office. Blank marriage packets and Form III Dispensation forms are available through the Canonical Office. Likewise, marriage packets going out/coming into the Archdiocese should also be directly addressed to Msgr. Nolan, Vicar for Canonical Services, not the Chancellor’s Office or Tribunal.

 Letters of good standing for Deacons will be processed through the Office of Diaconate Ministry and Formation. Please contact Claudia Garza at [email protected] or call her at 210-734-1658.
