World Marriage Day
February 11th-12th, 2023
February 12, 2023 is World Marriage Day, a celebration of Christian marriage that honors husband and wife as the foundation of the family. World Marriage Day salutes the faithfulness, sacrifice, and joy that are part of daily living for husbands and wives and their generous love that gives rise to new life.
On World Marriage Day, we celebrate married love whose enduring power comes from the total gift of self a man and a woman give to each other. In celebrating this day, we remember that God, in Jesus, is always with us and with his help and grace assists us in all our efforts to live the love he calls us to give to each other.
This year, we will celebrate all marriages at the Masses on the weekend of February 11th and 12th with a blessing of Married Couples and Re-Affirmation of Wedding Vows, but if you are not able to attend Mass in person, the livestream will be available.
How to Participate
If your 2023 wedding anniversary ends in a 0 or 5 year increment, we invite you to register below. The names of couples who sign up will be read at Mass; you may take part in the blessing from wherever you are, and you will receive a certificate by mail, signed by Father Scott. Please submit the form no later than February 10th.
Would you be willing to share “Then” and “Now” photographs? If you submit digital copy of your wedding photograph and a current picture, we would love to share them with the community on the electronic sign in the vestibule. Please submit your pictures no later than February 7th. The “Submit Photos” button will take you to a shared dropbox folder where you can select images from you computer or mobile device.
