  • In November 2009 the U.S. Catholic Bishops approved a pastoral letter called “Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan.” The letter presents the essential points of Catholic teaching on marriage as a natural gift, as a sacrament, and as a public commitment between a man and a woman. It also discusses several contemporary challenges to marriage and how the Church addresses those challenges.

World Marriage Day 2018

by Sr. Barbara Rund, OP

On February 11th after the noon Mass, forty parishioners celebrated World Marriage Day by gathering for dinner in the parish hall.  It was a festive occasion to witness to one another the joy of married life.

World Marriage Day honors husband and wife as head of the family, the basic unit of society. It salutes the beauty of their faithfulness, sacrifice and joy in daily married life.  

Special thanks to the Worship Commission and all the helpers who made this event possible, especially Kathy and Tom Bowen, Mary Anne and David Hathaway.
