Mafalda to remain a Roman Catholic

July 19, 1925

Special "ecclesiastical arrangements" for the religious wedding of Princess Mafalda of Savoy to Prince Philipp of Hesse are now complete, reports the Associated Press.

The wedding "will be accompanied by all Catholic religious rites," apart from a special mass, "for which no special dispensation can be made."  This is due to canonical law.

Prince Philipp, a Lutheran, has "consented to permit" Princess Mafalda to "remain a Catholic," and he has also agreed to have their children raised in the Roman Catholic faith.
