Valentine’s Day is powerful example of dedication

Two very powerful, faith-filled quotes fill this Valentine’s Day: “…and the greatest of these is love” and “…in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish all the days…”

We celebrated true and lasting love for Valentine’s Day with our annual Mass and dinner. Couples had the opportunity to renew their vows during an afternoon Mass in their honor, followed by a delicious meal prepared by our culinary services team in which couples were serenaded by a live pianist on the baby grand. Forty couples represent more than 2200 combined years of marriage! These couples inspire us through the commitment to their vows; many renew vows they took in their youth in light of a spouse who has since developed physical or cognitive challenges. After renewing their vows, Father Joe Pednekar blessed them with holy water. Happy Valentine’s Day!

The celebration took place Monday because it occurs the same day as Ash Wednesday this year. Here are a few highlights.
