General Announcements 

Golden Wedding Jubilee Mass on Aug. 9 is canceled

The Golden Wedding Jubilee Mass, which was scheduled on Aug. 9 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis, has been canceled due to the risk of coronavirus for those in a high-risk demographic. This annual celebration is sponsored by the archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family Life.

Couples celebrating an anniversary of 50, 55, 60, 65 and 70 or more years and who are members of a parish in the archdiocese are always welcome to run an announcement in The Criterion at no charge.

To submit an anniversary announcement online or to print out a submission form, go to bit.ly/AnniversaryForm. The page includes information on how to provide a photo, if desired.

Those without computer access can call Ann Lewis at 317-236-1585 with the following information: Couple’s first names and last name, wife’s maiden name, wedding date and year, current parish, church married in and city/town and state it’s located in, children’s first and last name (no spouse information), number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren and, if desired, how the anniversary was celebrated (i.e. blessing at Mass, dinner with family, family cruise, etc.).

For more information, contact Ann Lewis at 317-236-1585 or alewis@archindy.org.


National Pastoral Musicians Convention on July 7-10 moved to virtual format

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2020 National Pastoral Musicians Convention, originally scheduled to be held in Louisville on July 7-10, will now take place in a virtual format on the same dates.

The theme for the gathering is “Called from Living Waters.” Participants will be able to remotely take part in the four-day virtual convention experience, which includes keynote talks, breakout sessions, a virtual exhibit hall and daily prayer experiences. Among the topics are sessions addressing how music ministry looks in the midst of a pandemic, ways to be more inclusive within music ministry, and more.

An optional pre-conference virtual tour of the “Kentucky Holy Land” will take place at 1 p.m. on July 6. Participants will virtually visit significant Catholic sites in Washington, Nelson and Marion counties. The cost of the tour is $30 and is available for those attending all or only part of the conference.

The cost for full registration is $295, which includes access to all virtual content, livestream and interactive options for the convention. Pricing for full registration for youth participants is $225, and $205 for seminarians.

Other registration options include group registration for $265, limited registration for $195, and one-day registration for $95.

For more information about the conference or to register, go to npm.org/43rd-annual-convention.


Notice on parish festivals listings in The Criterion

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for parishes to cancel or reschedule festivals, The Criterion is not publishing a complete festival listing this year.

Instead, we will include parish festivals in our regular events calendar section.

We look forward to running our usual complete parish festival listing in 2021 in the last issue of May.
