On Sunday, May 18, over 100 couples that have been married for 50 years will be honored by the Diocese of Harrisburg.  Bishop Ronald W. Gainer will celebrate a Mass honoring and blessing couples from across Central Pennsylvania that are marking the Golden Wedding anniversary of their taking the vows of man and wife.
The special event will take place at Good Shepherd Church, 3435 Trindle Road, Camp Hill, PA at 2:00 p.m.
A total attendance of approximately 800 is expected at the celebration.  Of those attending 104 couples accepted an invitation to be present out of 248 couples that were identified by parishes as having been married in 1964.  Family members and guests will make up the remainder of those at the celebration.  Each anniversary couple will be presented with a certificate from the Diocese signed by Bishop Gainer honoring their 50 years of marriage.
