On Sunday, July 29th at 7:00 p.m., Bishop Mark will celebrate a special mass honoring the Sacrament of Marriage at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Alleghenies in Loretto next to the Basilica of St. Michael. Bring lawn chairs! It will be moved indoors if it rains.  This special mass is being offered as part of the Diocese's "Marriage Building Initiative" which is running through Lent of 2013. This initiative is for all of us, whether we are single or married (happily or not), engaged, separated/divorced, or even widowed. We've all had an "experience" of marriage through the marriage of parents or other key relatives. Let us celebrate together the benefists to Church and society of this Sacrament.
