Sunday, October 3 at 2 p.m. is the date set for the annual Silver and Golden Wedding Anniversary Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in Norwich. The registration deadline is September 10, 2021.
Bishop Michael Cote will be the main celebrant for this year’s Mass, which will honor the enduring love of married couples. The Mass will begin at 2 p.m. Each couple registering for the Mass will receive a signed certificate from the bishop.
The names of all registrants and their anniversary dates will also be listed on a special Anniversary Page on the Diocese of Norwich website and included in The Four County Catholic, our diocesan newspaper.
Couples may also e-mail a recent digital photo in a jpeg format of themselves to be included in a gallery of pictures on the website.
