Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass celebrates long-time marriages

Register online for the Mass and other Catholic marriage care programs offered this fall.

In the 2018 homily at the Mass Bishop Zarama said, ‘Marriage is a vocation of sharing your life.’

All those celebrating their wedding anniversary, with special recognition to couples with 25, 50, or 60 years of marriage, are invited to attend the annual Mass on Saturday, October 19 at 10 a.m.

Last year, more than 700 couples from across the diocese attended the mass. The longest-married couple in attendance had been married for 69 years. Register online to attend the Mass or contact Rebekah Tolson at (919) 821-9753.
