Celebrate National Marriage Day this Sunday!

In February, the focus always turns to chocolate candy, flowers and Valentine's Day on February 14. During the month, the Catholic Church also celebrates the sacrament of marriage with National Marriage Week and World Marriage Day/World Marriage Sunday.

In a letter to all U.S. Bishops, Bishop Richard J. Malone, the chairman of United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth, states that the three aforementioned special events provide an opportunity to celebrate the gift and blessing of marriage and to affirm and support engaged and married couples." In his letter, Bishop Malone recommends resources for dioceses and parishes to "continue to build a culture that honors and promotes marriage and the family."
