Celebrate Marriages At Silver and Gold Mass Aug. 20
August 3, 2023
DIOCESE—“We are expecting about 250 couples!” says an excited Therese Stahl, Director of the Life and Family Evangelization (LiFE) 
 
Office, about the upcoming Silver and Gold Mass that will be celebrated Aug. 20, 2:30 p.m., at St. Mary Parish, Huntley. The church is at 10307 Dundee Rd. 
 
Bishop David Malloy will celebrate the Mass for  couples marking wedding anniversaries of 25, 50, 55, 60, 65 and 70 or more years. A cake and punch reception will follow. 
 
“This Silver and Gold celebration helps us mark significant anniversaries in Catholic marriages in the diocese,” Stahl says. “Catholic marriage is a gift from God that reflects the love that Christ has for the Church,” she adds, because “what God has joined together, no human being must separate” (Matt. 19:6).
 
The LiFE Office welcomes registration by phone at 815-399-4300 or online at www.rockforddiocese.org/anniversary by Aug. 4. Couples who pre-register will receive commemorative certificates.
