Silver & Gold Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Each year, the diocesan church celebrates a Sunday evening prayer service, giving public expression and recognition to couples celebrating their 25th or 50th wedding anniversaries.

The service is celebrated by the Bishop in the Cathedral and all celebrating couples are invited to attend. Wedding vows are renewed and each couple receives a personalized certificate from the Bishop.

If you are celebrating your 25th or 50th wedding anniversary and would like to take part in the celebration, you need to complete an application at your parish after the date is announced. Your parish will submit it directly to us and we will send you a letter with all the information few weeks before the day.
