The Diocese of Savannah celebrates World Marriage Day annually with a special Golden and Silver Wedding Jubilee Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah for all couples married 25 or 50 years.

The next Golden and Silver Wedding Jubilee Mass will be celebrated on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist at 11:30 a.m This year 118 couples will be honored. One couple, Joseph and Ann Farr from Blessed Sacrament Parish in Savannah, is celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary.
There are 82 couples celebrating golden jubilees and 35 couples celebrating silver jubilees.

World Marriage Day, celebrated on the second Sunday in February each year, honors husband and wife as head of the family, the basic unit of society. It salutes the beauty of their faithfulness, sacrifice and joy in daily married life. The permanent theme adopted for the day is “Love One Another.” Loving one another is a daily decision, simple but challenging. The symbol for World Marriage Day consists of two candle-like figures joined by a heart. The hope is that couples will be reminded of their calling as married couples to enlighten the world by being life-giving to one another..

All are invited to attend the celebration.
