(PHOTOS) Bishop John B. Brungardt urged couples who were gathered at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Dodge City Oct. 20 to “pray together daily, pouring out your thoughts and feelings to the Lord”.
Dozens of couples from across southwest Kansas converged on the cathedral on the plains for the annual Wedding Anniversary Mass, which was followed by a dinner reception.
“We thank you, God,” the bishop said, “for your presence in these marriages. Please help them to grow ever closer to you and to each other throughout this life so they may rejoice in your love eternally.”
The couples grasped hands and renewed their love and commitment to each other: “Today, I renew my commitment to you,” they said to one another. “I promise to love you and honor you all the days of my life.”
