Couples celebrate 50 years of love and commitment

How can you represent 7050 years? For the 141 couples celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversaries at a special Mass May 20, 7050 is the number of years of love and commitment their marriages represent.

“Your love is a powerful and personal gift to you from God, and a means of holiness; and it is also a gift to the Church and the world,” Bishop Finn told the couples in his homily at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. “Your marriage in Jesus Christ is a testimony to the Providence of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, who has kept you on the path all these years.”
