World Marriage Day

Archbishop Rozanski will celebrate a Mass for World Marriage Day at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on February 13, 2022 at 2:30 pm. All married couples are invited to attend and celebrate the gift of
marriage. World Marriage Day honors husband and wife as the foundation of the family – the basic unit of society. It emphasizes the faithfulness, sacrifice and joy of daily married life.

World Marriage Day started in Baton Rouge, LA in 1981 and was later adopted by Worldwide Marriage Encounter who now is sponsoring this event on February 13th.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is excited to announce the following schedule for IN-PERSON weekend Experiences for the winter and spring of 2022. We will have in place all the needed precautions to

THY WILL BE DONE

When those in the world see us, see the Church, what do they see? How do they define us? Through our deeds and our actions, through the impact we make on others’ lives. And so, when Jesus announces to the world that He is risen, he does not do it through pomp, through seeking attention. No, he does it through an act of charity. Through the healing of someone in need, giving of Himself and His gifts so that those who need it most may receive God’s grace and mercy.

That leads Peter to proclaim, “There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by which we are to be saved.” (Acts 4:8-12) When we show God’s love to others, the joy is contagious. The Good Shepherd knows to lead His flock to where they will prosper, and all He asks is that we follow His holy will. We give of ourselves because He provided the ultimate sacrifice, we love others because His boundless love fills our cups until they are overflowing.

Through our collective support of the Annual Catholic Appeal, we can proclaim with one voice, Thy Will Be Done. The past year has brought considerable challenge and hardship to so many, but your generous support of the Appeal helped provide hope and support for our parishes and our entire community. Please, help our Church continue to make a positive impact in the lives of those who need it most. You can give by visiting:  aca.archstl.org to learn more about how the Appeal uplifts the lives of those we serve.
