Couples celebrating milestone anniversaries are invited to receive a special blessing from Bishop Deeley at the Silver & Gold Mass on Saturday, June 24, at 4 p.m., at St. John Church on 217 York Street in Bangor.
All are invited to attend the Mass which celebrates the joy of Christian marriage, but the Mass is especially intended for those celebrating milestone anniversaries, such as their 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th or beyond.
The Silver & Gold Anniversary Mass is a testimony to the goodness of marriage and the blessings it can bring a husband and wife. The gathering will thank God for graces given and ask for the continuing gift of grace to persevere in the commitments that have been made.
“Christian marriage is about self-giving,” said Bishop Deeley. “Each spouse seeks to serve the other so that what they create is more than either of them apart. They are a couple and they are a family helping each other to grow in an appreciation of God’s gift of love and how it is lived in our world.”
To participate, RSVP by June 16 at (207) 321-7884 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
