World Marriage Day

This day is celebrated each year on the second Sunday in February to honor husband and wife as head of the family, the basic unit of society. It salutes the beauty of their faithfulness, sacrifice and joy in daily married life, and has adapted the theme, "Love One Another." Now is the time to gather a committee to plan this day of celebration. For ideas and suggestions for making your World Marriage Day the best ever, please contact the Office of Family Life.
