The Celebration of Marriage Mass this year is at the Cathedral on Saturday the 2 July. Starting on 24 June and in the week leading up to this Mass we are encouraging people to celebrate the gift of marriage together, as a couple, a family and as part of the parish community. The Department for Adult Education and Evangelisation has produced a booklet for marriage week and have ‘Accompaniment in Life and Love’ as our theme for this week- long celebration. In this booklet we offer suggestions on ways to pray together, ways to celebrate as a community and further ideas for couples and families to help nurture their spiritual life and grow in love together. The booklet can be found here.
