The annual outdoor Mass for married couples is scheduled for July 23 at 7:00 p.m. at the Our Lady of the Alleghenies Shrine in Loretto. Bishop Mark will be the celebrant and homilist. All husbands and wives are invited, along with their family and friends. During the Liturgy, married couples will have the opportunity to renew their wedding vows. The Mass is a chance for all of the faithful to show their support for marriage and married couples.
Please bring your own lawn chair to the Liturgy. If it rains, Mass will be celebrated inside the Basilica of Saint Michael the Archangel, next to the Shrine.
Outdoor Masses are celebrated every Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. at the Our Lady of the Alleghenies Shrine during the summer months.
