Canon 1196. In addition to the Roman Pontiff, the following can dispense from private vows for a just cause provided that a dispensation does not injure a right acquired by others:

1. the local ordinary and the pastor with regard to all their subjects and even travelers;

2. the superior of a religious institute or society of apostolic life if it is clerical and of pontifical right with regard to members, novices, and persons who live day and night in a house of the institute or society;

3. those to whom the Apostolic See or the local ordinary has delegated the power of dispensing.
