SMM first hosted CELEBRATE MARRIAGE SUNDAY at the 12 noon Mass on the last Sunday in January 2004. Father Ed Thompson presided over a special Mass for married couples.
During this special Eucharistic celebration, all couples are given the opportunity to renew their marriage vows. Special recognition is given to those married 5, 10 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 plus years. Our Catholic Parish Community singles out for high esteem the most recently married and the longest married at the 12:00 noon Mass.
Photographs of the couples particpating are included at www.StMaryMagdalen.org Family Ministry section. James and Dorothy Charron participated in the Celebrate Marriage Sunday on 29 January 2006. The joy of that day quickly turned to horror as he was killed the following day by a red light runner.
