Marriage & Family Life

48th Annual Marriage Jubilee (2020)

We will continue the tradition of honoring milestone wedding anniversaries as we have for 48 years. Unfortunately, we cannot gather in person for Mass this year due to the pandemic.
Couples are invited to submit their anniversary and contact information through their parish or at marriage.jubilee@rcda.org by October 23.
Couples will receive a certificate and blessing from Bishop Scharfenberger by postal mail.
Questions can be directed to 518-453-6644 or Marriage.Jubilee@rcda.org
