Tuam Diocese Celebrates Marriage

Tuam Diocesan Celebration of Marriage Anniversaries – Invitation!

The Diocesan Pastoral Council is delighted to announce that our Archdiocese is arranging a special celebration of significant ‘Marriage Anniversaries’.

This special celebration will take place on Sunday October 21st, Mission Sunday, @ 3pm in the Cathedral in Tuam. The chief celebrant will be Archbishop Michael Neary.

At this ceremony there will be renewal of marriage vows, and each couple will receive a candle and Prayer Card in remembrance of the occasion. After Mass, refreshments will be served for all attending, in St Jarlath’s College.

Couples celebrating any of the following anniversaries this year, 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, are cordially invited to attend, and they are welcome to invite their families and friends to join them for this special occasion.

As this is the first time the Diocese is celebrating such an event we would hope that each parish would encourage as many couples as possible, to attend what is, a celebration of Marriage and Family Life.

To help us plan this event we will need to know how many will be attending from each parish, so we would appreciate if you would fill out the attached form and return no later than  Monday October 15th to:                  Mary Connell, Secretary DPC, Monastery, Chapel St, Castlebar.  Email: marygc@ireland.com

Thanking you and with kind wishes,


Mary Connell
