Norma Hilda Rivas Baños, the daughter of Father Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legion of Christ, was married on Friday, June 10, 2011, in Madrid, Spain. The groom was Juan María Piñero, a former Legionary novice.
The wedding took place at the church of the "Salesas Reales" in Madrid. Two priests - Fr. Francisco Javier Martín Bautista and Fr. Jordi Girau Reverter neither of whom are members of the Legionaries of Christ - officiated at the ceremony.
No major superior from the Legionaries of Christ was in attendance although Reforma, a Mexican newspaper, reports that one person wearing typical Legionary clerical garb was sighted at the ceremony. The event brought together about 120 guests. The couple met at the Legion's Francisco de Vitoria University in Madrid.
