Metropolitan Tribunal and Office of Canonical Affairs

Mr. Andrew Shea

Mr. Andrew Shea is a native Coloradan and has been serving the Metropolitan Tribunal as a Judicial Auditor since late 2012.  He also serves as a cantor at St. James Parish.

Under the direction of one of the Judges (the Ponens), the Auditor assists the Court in conducting marriage nullity investigations and monitoring their progress, especially in regard to depositions at the Tribunal and obtaining the testimony of court-appointed psychological experts. In addition, the Auditor facilitates communication between the Court and the parties (together with their Advocates).  At times, the Auditor also serves as a Notary and, thus, is responsible for drafting and authenticating the required documentation in the course of marriage nullity investigations.
