Bishop Declan invited all married couples and those engaged to be married from across the diocese to a Celebration of Marriage Mass at Clifton Cathedral on Saturday the 2nd of July. 

The Cathedral Dean, Canon Bosco MacDonald, celebrated the Mass for couples and their families who came together to mark a combined total of 2,044 years of marriage! Unfortunately, the wet weather meant we could not carry on the festivities after Mass with a glass of fizz on the cathedral terrace.

The Celebration of Marriage Mass was filmed on the cathedral livestream and the recording will be available for a short period of time.  The video can be found under the recordings tab on this page Live Mass | Clifton Diocese.  

Enjoy these pictures and please share your experiences of Marriage Week and the Celebration of Marriage Mass with us at
