Mass celebrated by Bishop Ned Shlesinger
Join us to renew your wedding vows and enjoy an evening out with drinks and dinner catered by Samad Mediterranean Grill in Sandy Springs.
This year’s guest speaker is Fr Juan Pablo Durán, LC, an Atlanta native who has served the Church in a variety of roles with the Legionaries of Christ. Fr JP’s passion is helping couples discover the dignity and potential of their vocation in Christ.
From Fr Juan, “The Church in the US is going through a 3-year ‘Eucharistic Revival’, but how does that affect “the way of the Church, which is the family”? In what way does a reflection on the Blessed Sacrament help couples understand the Sacrament of Marriage and its mysterious power and fruitfulness? How can couples tap into the grace of the Eucharist to renew, deepen and strengthen their own love? How can spouses encounter one another again in the Sacrament of Communion?“
Special Treat this year!
If you are celebrating your 25th, 35th, 50th, or 60th wedding anniversary in 2024 and attend the dinner, you will receive a Papal Blessing Parchment! A papal blessing, or Benediction Papalis, is a blessing from the Holy Father to honor important events in the life of a Catholic – such as a milestone anniversary of a Catholic marriage! Blessings are given in the form of parchments that are hand painted and inscribed at the Vatican with the names of the couple.

5:00 pm: Mass & Vow Renewal
6:00 pm: Drinks, dinner, and speaker in Ministry Hall (hosted by our Marriage Ministry)
