Bride May Ask Lifting Of Excommunication, Church Officials Say By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Oct. 14.—A pretty society bride, excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church, may, if she wishes, seek to have the ban lifted. A chancery official of the Cath olic Archdiocese of New York, headed by Francis Cardinal Spell man, says the next move is up to her. She is the former Claire Eliza beth McGinnis of San Francisco, who was married Monday to Ivan Obolensky, son of a former Rus sian prince and an heir to the John Jacob Astor fortune. Must Do Penance. The Catholic Church declared her excommunicated yesterday because she had gone through a wedding in the bridegroom’s church, the Russian Orthodox af ter a Roman Catholic ceremony. If the wishes to remain a Catholic, a chancery official said, she must confer with church of ficials to find out what penance she must do to have the ban re moved. Friends of the bride said she was too upset to make any com ment immediately. The excommunication an nouncement said the couple had agreed in writing there would be; only the Catholic marriage cere-' mony. v However, young Obolensky later issued a statement saying that if he signed any such agreement “I can only say the effect of it was not fully realized by me.” Obolensky Explains Views. “I was aware of the Catholic church requirement that any chil dren of our marriage be brought up as Catholics,” he added. He said that he had been “will ing to participate in a wedding ceremony in accordance with my wife’s faith, and she felt the same about mirib.7 “I feel that freedom of religion, to each of us, is in accordance with good American doctrine,” he said. “I sincerely regret the severe penalty which has been visited on Claire by her church.” Excommunication bars a Cath olic from all the sacraments deemed by the church to be es sential to salvation.
