Married couples around the Diocese will be invited to renew their vows and thank God for the gift of the Sacrament of Marriage during the annual Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass on September 13.
Because this Mass is always a packed house when it is celebrated in-person, this year’s Mass will be on-line so that all can participate safely from their homes.
Bishop Alfred Schlert will celebrate the Mass on-line at 11 a.m. Sept. 13.
All are welcome to join in by watching the Mass on AD Today, on YouTube, or on Facebook.
Those couples celebrating 1-5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 or 60-plus years of marriage will receive special recognition during the Mass, and will receive a certificate from Bishop Schlert in the mail.
To receive the recognition and certificate, you need to register with the Diocese, beginning August 1. You can do so online at www.allentowndiocese.org/anniversarymass . The deadline to register is Friday September 4. If you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free 1-800-831-4443.
