Feb. 3 is deadline to register for Feb. 9 World Marriage Day celebration

Criterion staff report

World Marriage Day, celebrated this year on Feb. 9, is a wonderful opportunity to affirm the beauty of the sacrament of marriage.

To honor this day, the Annual Marriage Day Mass will take place at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis at 2 p.m. on Feb. 9. Msgr. William F. Stumpf, archdiocesan vicar general, will serve as the principal celebrant of the liturgy.

After the Mass, all are invited for a reception across the street at the Archbishop Edward T. O’Meara Catholic Center, 1400 N. Meridian St., in the Assembly Hall. Hors d’oeuvres will be served, and the floor will be open for dancing. Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society will serve as DJs for the event, and will even offer a 30-minute swing dance lesson.

All married couples of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, as well as all involved in any form of marriage ministry, are invited to celebrate the witness of love and perseverance by all those who are married in the Catholic Church in central and southern Indiana.

Registration is required by Feb. 3 for this free event. To register online or to print a registration form to mail in, go to bit.ly/WorldMarriageDay.

For questions about the event, contact the archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family Life by phone at 317-236-1521 or toll free at 1-800-382-9836, ext. 1521, or e-mail kcarroll@archindy.org. †
