ST. MARTIN'S MARRIAGES CELEBRATION
December 2, 2020
Each year the Archdiocese of Washington honors couples married, 25, 30, 40, 45, 50 and 51+ at the annual Jubilarian Mass, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Every parish within our archdiocese is given registration forms to fill out by a certain date for all who would like to participate in this Mass. This year the Mass was cancelled, and many parishes in our archdiocese celebrated those couples who had signed up for the Jubilarian Mass, on Sunday, November 22nd. On that day, Father Tony gave a special blessing to all of our couples who had registered, at the 9:00am Mass in English.
Congratulations again to:
David & Judy Cullen (50 years)
Robert & Mary Jane Janniello (40 years)
Ernesto & Maria Sanchez (25 years)
Lawrence & Mary Katherine Stubbs (60 years)
Angelica & Antonio Robles (60 years)
Aida & Arnold Ayala (40 years)
