Bishop David M.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Evangelization and Family Life, assisted by the Office of Worship.

The Oct. 2 Mass for couples in Burlington and Mercer Counties will take place in St. Mary of the Assumption Cathedral, 149 N. Warren St., Trenton; the Oct. 9 Mass for couples in Monmouth and Ocean Counties will take place in St. Robert Bellarmine Co-Cathedral, 61 Georgia Rd., Freehold.

Mass times will be at 3 p.m. on both dates, during which couples will have an opportunity to renew their vows. A reception for the couples, their families and community will follow after each Mass.
