Registration Continues for Wedding Anniversary Mass
Registration continues for the Fifth Annual Wedding Anniversary Mass scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2011, at St. Peter Catholic Church in Greenville. The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge will be Principal Celebrant and Homilist at the Diocesan-wide celebration, which will honor couples married 25, 50 and 50-plus years. Its purpose is to honor the vocation of Marriage and to focus on the importance of this vocation for the life of the Church and society. The Implementation of the Pastoral Initiative on Marriage is one of the seven priorities of the Diocese of Raleigh’s Pastoral Plan.
The annual event draws married couples from throughout the diocese. Participants appreciate the opportunity to celebrate their milestone anniversaries with Bishop Burbidge and their families. The Mass will take place at 3:00 p.m. It will be followed by a reception for the anniversary couples and their families.
Couples and families planning to attend are asked to register with their parishes. For more information please contact Mrs. Linda Bedo, Director of Marriage and Family Life at 919-821-9753 or by email at Linda.Bedo@raldioc.org.
