The Archdiocese of Vancouver’s new marriage mentorship program isn’t the only way to support wedded couples, community, and lifelong relationship.

This spring, the Archdiocese of Vancouver will once again host the Marriage Anniversary Mass, an annual event that honours couples celebrating anniversaries in five-year increments, from five years to 60+ years. It will be held Sunday, May 12, Mother’s Day, at St. Paul’s Church in Richmond.

Last year, 225 couples (and their families) filled St. Matthew’s Parish to celebrate a combined total of 6,700 years of marriage.
