At the end of the 11:30 Mass today we offered a blessing for couples celebrating significant wedding anniversaries (from 5 years to 61 years married!). As the anniversary couples arrived at church they received corsages and boutonnieres. After Communion we presented each couple to the assembly, noting their year of anniversary, their wedding date and the church in which they married. Brunch for the couples and their guests followed in the parish hall.
A beautiful way to celebrate the Eucharistic feast of the Body and Blood of the Lord: at the wedding feast of the Lamb where Christ the Groom embraces his Bride, the Church, in the holiest and most intimate communion of all.
