Celebrate Marriage Sunday was beautifully organized this year by Mary Jo Nocero with her wonderful team: Grace Hennessey, Barbara Kuhn Epple, Maureen Castille, Susan Spellane, Chrissy Schween, Maria Garcia, Veronica Daily, Maria Sonksen, Feroza D’Abreu, Mary Little, Terry and Paul Bouchard, Gail and Tony Bechtold, Dina and Tom Van Kannought, Dawn and Sal Rivas, Dan and Liz Copeland, Cindy and Steve Nolder, Maureen and Tom Kramlinger, Doug Magee and Mike Nocero. Claire Geltz, indispensable as always, made up the Certificates and took registrations.
The Mass was celebrated by Father Ed Thompson. We had over 20 couples who had been married more than 50 years! Our lectors were Maureen and Tom Kramlinger, Mike and Mary Jo Nocero, Liz and Dan Copeland.
Group photos were taken by Doug Magee, and individual photos by Veronica Dailey, assisted by Maria Sonksen.
Our longest married couples Gilda and Lawrence Pettinati and Celia and Jack Rube at 65 years were honored last year, and so this year we honor the couples married 60 years: Frank and Alice Gidus, Catherine and Jack Cassidy, Robert and Elizabeth Geiger, Mae and George Armstrong, and Bob and Ellen Sutcliff.
