Each year, the Diocese of Allentown celebrates the Vocation of Marriage by offering a Mass for married couples celebrating a milestone anniversary. The couples are invited to renew their vows and thank God for the gift of the Sacrament of Marriage during the Annual Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass held each September.
The 2021 Wedding Anniversary Mass celebration was held on Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 3:00 PM. Bishop Alfred Schlert celebrated the Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Catharine in Allentown and guests could attend in person or view the livestreamed Mass on AD Today, on the Diocese of Allentown Facebook page, or on Service Electric Cable TV.
The 171 couples registered for the Mass represented over 7,994 years of marriage. In addition, 107 of the couples are celebrating their 50th anniversary or more, 16 couples still attend the church where they were married and 61 individuals attended Catholic school.
