Bishop to Celebrate Outdoor Mass for Married Couples on July 19


A special opportunity for husbands and wives to celebrate and reaffirm their loving commitment.

The annual outdoor Mass for Married Couples is scheduled for July 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Our Lady of the Alleghenies Shrine in Loretto. As always, Bishop Mark will be the celebrant and homilist. The gathering is sponsored by the Family Life Office of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown.

During the liturgy, husbands and wives will have the opportunity to renew their sacramental commitment to each other and receive a blessing from the Bishop.

All married couples from throughout the diocese are invited. Bring your own lawn chair. As with all of liturgical celebrations right now, please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
