Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (a.k.a. TomKat, apparently) are having a baby. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are also both baptized Catholic. But now Tom is a Scientologist, and Katie seems to be leaning that way. Katie’s parents are pushing for the baby to be baptized. Will Church law and pastoral practice permit this? CANONIST […]

A reader writes: My sister is getting married this summer. She is thinking about keeping our last name instead of taking her husbands name or hyphenation of the two names. I am not sure how I feel about this except that if it is ok with her future husband and her it’s probably ok. My […]
