Marriage Sunday highlights the importance of the sacrament of matrimony, affirms couples who strengthen our faith community through their witness, and complements World Marriage Sunday celebrations that take place across North America. It also honours those who nurture marriage ministries – marriage preparation, enrichment, etc. First celebrated in the Archdiocese of Toronto in 2011, His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins designated the weekend prior to the Family Day long weekend in Ontario as “Marriage Sunday”. In 2022, Marriage Sunday weekend will be celebrated on February 12/13, 2022.
Celebration of Marriage Mass
The Celebration of Marriage Mass will take place on Sunday, February 13, 2022, at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica, 65 Bond St, Toronto at 2:30 p.m. Bishop Robert Kasun, CSB will preside over this special Mass and all married couples will have an opportunity to renew their vows. Due to social distancing measures, in-person attendance is limited at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica and only couples celebrating their milestone 25th, 40th, 50th, 60th, and 60+ wedding anniversaries and one (1) guest per celebrant couple will be able to register to attend (for a total of a group of 3). Other couples, family, and friends are welcome to participate in the celebration via the Livestream. The broadcast will begin at 2:15 p.m.
Registration will close on February 4, 2022, or when we reach maximum capacity at the Cathedral. We look forward to meeting and serving all the married couples who have registered for this event.
