A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
Beyond what might be considered obvious (changing exterior signs, bulletins, stationary) does changing the name of a catholic church involve a lot of work? Is there a process with Rome that is required?
Canon law appears to suggest that the name of a church can't be changed:http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/__P4H.HTM(No. 1218)But maybe a bishop can overrule that? Or maybe "title" means something different in that context?
I'd suspect that's dealt with in procedures covered elsewhere. I'll have to look into it.Since we're Catholics, of course, we obey the Church's teaching on the authority of bishops.
If the bishop said it is, it is, period.
