From Staff Reports

Couples across the Diocese are invited to tune into a special Holy Hour for Marriage this weekend that is being livestreamed from Nativity Parish, Fair Haven.

The Holy Hour was planned for couples celebrating their first, 25th, 50th or more anniversaries after COVID-19 postponed the annual Bishop’s Anniversary Blessings Masses. However, all couples are encouraged to take part in support of holy marriages.

From 3 to 4 p.m. Oct. 25, Father James Grogan, pastor, will preside over the Holy Hour, which will be held outdoors on church grounds, weather permitting. The Holy Hour will include exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, and liturgical music, praise and worship. Prayers will be read by selected married couples from around the Diocese who represent each of the milestone years.

There will also be Intercessory Prayers offered for the different stages of marriage – engaged couples, newly married, parents and those who have been married most of their lives.

Because the annual Bishop’s Anniversary Blessings were postponed for 2020, all couples celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2020 will be invited to next year’s Anniversary Blessings Masses, scheduled for Oct. 3, 2021, for Burlington and Mercer Counties, and Oct. 10, 2021, for Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
