For Parishes: Bulletins



Congratulations! Being married for fifty years is such a wonderful achievement. I’m sure you have looked at each other and asked, “How did we manage to stay together for fifty years?”

Our office is responsible for marriage preparation in the Archdiocese and who knows more about marriage than you, who have lived the true meaning of “for better or for worse?”

Here’s your chance to be heard! Please fill out a survey about your fifty years together. Some answers will be compiled into a booklet to be used in a variety of ways, and we’ll post some on our website.  We’ll send you a free copy to thank you for your participation in this project. We have been doing this for twelve years, and many Jubilarians have enjoyed being a part of the project.

Because we expect about 500 couples to attend, there is only enough room in the Cathedral for the Jubilarian couples. One or two family members can view the Mass on closed-circuit in the auditorium of the school next door, and meet their Jubilarian couple for the reception afterwards.
