25th & 50th Wedding Anniversary Mass & Celebration
Sunday, February 8, 2015 at 3:00pm
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church & Parish Activity Center
We are excited to announce our annual event honoring married couples! Couples reaching their 25th, 50th, or 65th and over anniversary wedding anniversary at any time during 2015 are invited to a special mass at Our Lady of Mercy Church (445 Marquette Ave., Baton Rouge) with Bishop Robert Muench followed by a reception in the OLOM Parish Activity Center. A special blessing will be given and special certificates with the bishop's seal will be awarded to the celebrating couples.
To register for this special event, couples should contact their parish office to provide their registration information. Parish offices will then send in all couples' information to the Office of Marriage & Family Life.
Registration deadline is Friday, January 30th. Names received after this may not have certificates ready but will still be able to attend the mass and reception. We won't turn anyone away! In this case, the certificates will be mailed later.
The Bishop will be available for taking pictures at the reception after the mass. Couples or family members should bring their own personal cameras for this.
