The Celebration of Marriage took place in our Cathedral on Saturday 13 July. Bishop Declan gave the Homily at this now annual celebration for the whole diocesan community, especially our married couples. You can hear his full Homily and blessing below.
A nice addition this year was to enjoy a glass of bucks fizz on the terrace after the Mass.
A prayer for married couples:
Here, O Lord we offer to you
ourselves, our souls and bodies,
our thoughts and our deeds,
our desires and our prayers,
our love for each other.
We ask you to receive us as we are,
and, of your mercy,
make us what you would have us be,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
