On Sunday, 19th June a number of people who had significant Wedding Anniversaries attended the 12.00 Mass together with members of their families. During the course of the Mass the couples were invited to renew their marriage promises and they recited together the prayer below.

Gracious God, we remember with thanksgiving
our vows of love and commitment to you and to each other
in marriage.
We pray for your continued blessing.
May we learn from our joys and sorrows,
and discover new riches in our life together in you.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty and most merciful Father,
The strength of all who put their trust in you,
We thank you that in marriage we were brought together.
Enrich us by your grace
And strengthen us to keep those vows
which today we now renew in your sight;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Parish Priest, Fr. Healy thanked the couples for agreeing to take part in the ceremony which been suggested by some of our parishioners. He hoped that this ceremony would help to highlight the imp ortance of marriage in society and of course the importance it has in the eyes of God.

The couples were then presented with mementoes of the occasion. Firstly, a beautiful card handcrafted by two parishioners. Secondly a special candle embossed and decorated by the same two parishioners. And also a red rose.
