Is your FI the non-Catholic? It doesn’t matter if you “don’t mind” your FI taking communion … from a Catholic perspective, that is VERY offensive and even sacriligious. If he does not believe in it, then he should not receive it. (sorry if I misinterpreted and you are actually the non-Catholic one.)

@red_rose:  +1 If you’re not catholic then you should’t receive communion fullstop! The priest can do a blessing so that the non-catholic doesn’t feel left out.

 @newname_99:  You mention paperwork in the title of your thread? Do you know if he has filled out the appropriate documents (in Australia, you need to register a document stating your intention to marry).

6pm is a very late wedding. Have you checked that there isn’t a Saturday night mass? Most priests know eachother- I would call up the other local priest and explain the situation and ask for his guidance.

Yes, my first though when I read your original post was, “27 days? Yeah, your priest totally isn’t thinking about your wedding yet, if you guys are in Mexico.”

Now, I think I remember from reading some of your other posts that the priest who will be marrying you is actually not Mexican, right, but an American (English speaker) in Mexico, because you wanted a bilingual priest?

Even so, though, you are a ways out yet and it’s not that surprising that the priest hasn’t emailed you back yet. Maddening, yes, I understand, but not terribly surprising. I’m sure it will come together just fine – it’s just that it’s still a ways off on his radar.
