Canon 302

1. The parochial vicars are to exercise the rights and obligations of the common and particular law as well as from the letters of the eparchial bishop and under the authority of the pastor; but, unless expressly determined otherwise and except for

the obligation mentioned in can. 294, the parochial vicar must,

in virtue of his office assist in the entire parochial ministry

and if circumstances warrant it, to substitute for the pastor.

2. In virtue of his office, the parochial vicar does not have

the faculty of blessing marriages; nevertheless, this faculty can

also be conferred upon him even generally, by, besides the local

hierarch, the pastor within the boundaries of the parish; if conferred upon him, the parochial vicar can also confer this faculty

upon other priests for individual cases. 3. The parochial

vicar, as the cooperator of the pastor, provides daily a preeminent and active assistance in the pastoral function. Between the

pastor and the parochial vicar there should always be a fraternal

relationship, mutual love and reverence; they are to assist each

other by consultation, help and example, studiously providing

parochial care in harmonious and common will. 4. The parochial

vicar is bound by the obligation of residing in the parish according to the prescriptions of the eparchial bishop or lawful

custom; the parochial vicar has the same rights to vacation as

the pastor.
