Constitutions & Canons
The Constitution and Canons are the written rules governing diocesan policy, structure and procedure. They must be in conformance with the Constitution and Canons of the national church. What’s the difference? A constitution is the fundamental legal document of an institution, establishing its existence, structure and rules for governance. A canon is a specific ecclesiastical rule of law enacted by a Convention in sync with the constitution.
