The annual Anniversary Mass for couples celebrating special wedding anniversaries during the year resumed on Saturday, Nov. 20, at the Cathedral of Christ the King at the 5:00 p.m. Mass. The Mass was followed by a reception in Hehman Hall with food, champagne and cake.
About 40 couples were honored with anniversaries ranging from 10 to 72 years. In the photo above, John and Alice Dearing, celebrating 72 years of marriage, cut the cake. The event is hosted every year by Mike Allen, director of the diocese’s Family Life Office.
Last year’s Mass and celebration were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
