Archdiocesan Marriage Day Celebration is June 7

The Archdiocesan Office of Marriage, Family and Life will host its annual Marriage Day Celebration at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 7, at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

The celebration of “the beautiful mystery of the mutual self-gift between a man and a woman” includes Mass, renewal of vows and a short reception.

Ann and Paul Dickinson, parishioners of St. Joseph in West St. Paul, first attended the celebration last year when it fell on their 50th anniversary. The couple, who has seven children and seven grandchildren, plans to attend this year’s event.

“The sacrament of marriage is forever; it gives you the graces to be a team,” Ann said. “You have to keep praying and going to the other sacraments for replenishment. It’s important that the archdiocese is supporting [married couples].”

Couples married more than 50 years will be specially honored. Families and friends of honored couples are welcome to attend.

Certificates to commemorate the sacrament of marriage, signed by Archbishop John Nienstedt, are available for couples married one or more years. To receive a certificate, please contact the Office of Marriage, Family and Life at (651) 291-4488 or
