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 will take place on Sunday, February 9, 2020 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral (1347 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202). Mass begins at 2:00pm with Msgr. William Stumpf, archdiocesan Vicar General, as our celebrant and includes a special blessing over all the married couples present.

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

The Marriage Day Celebration is free to attend, but registration is required either online or by sending in a paper form (see links below). A free-will donation will be taken during Mass to support the ministires of the Office of Marriage and Family Life of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

For more information, contact the Office of Marriage and Family Life at (317) 236-1521 or kcarroll@archindy.org.

Golden Wedding Jubilee

36th Annual Golden Wedding Jubilee

August 25, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Ss. Peter and Paul Cathedral

**Registration is CLOSED**

REGISTRATION will open for the 36th Annual Golden Wedding Jubilee on May 30, 2019. Registration Deadline: August 19, 2019. Event is free, but registration is suggested.

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.

"If our faith is mature, we realize that all is gift, all is grace. Love begins to die when you and I take the other one for granted, whether its our spouse or the living God. They become an object, something we can ignore, or at least pay only partial attention to. And so, perseverance in marriage is not simply survival, though sometimes it may seem like that. Rather, it's a life of thanksgiving that we do not go home to God alone. A way of life that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ has to be a grateful life."

~Excerpt from Archbishop Tobin's homily for the Archdiocesan 31st Annual Golden Wedding Jubilee~
