Archdiocesan Wedding Celebrations

Golden Wedding Jubilee

37th Annual Golden Wedding Jubilee

August 9, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Ss. Peter and Paul Cathedral

**The Office of Marriage and Family Life has cancelled the 37th Annual Golden Wedding Jubilee Mass originally scheduled for Sunday, August 9, 2020 with Archbishop Thompson presiding. The population normally attending the mass is in the 65+ age range and considered high risk. Out of prudence, we are cancelling this year's event.

We still plan to have next year's wedding anniversary event on August 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm at SS Peter and Paul Cathedral.**

Each year the Archdiocese of Indianapolis honors couples who celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. This celebration is centered in the celebration of Holy Eucharist and typically takes place annually in the fall at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral. In addition to Mass, the couples participate in renewing their wedding vows, a reception following the Mass, and are given a Jubilarian Marriage Certificate to mark the occasion.

February 9th marks World Marriage Day. This day provides a wonderful opportunity to affirm the vocation of marriage in the Catholic Church and to celebrate the witness of marriage in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

The annual Archdiocesan Marriage Day Celebration took place on Sunday, February 9, 2020 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral (1347 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202). Mass began at 2:00pm with Msgr. William Stumpf, archdiocesan Vicar General, as our celebrant and included a special blessing over all the married couples present.

A reception followed in the Assembly Hall of the Archbishop O'Meara Catholic Center, across the street from the Cathedral. There were hors d'oeuvres, music, and a swing dance lesson led by the Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society.
