World Marriage Day, celebrated in February each year, honors 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. The permanent theme adopted for the day is “Love One Another.” Loving one another is a daily decision, simple but challenging. The symbol for World Marriage Day consists of two candle-like figures joined by a heart. The hope is that couples will be reminded of their calling as married couples to enlighten the world by being life-giving to one another.
The Diocese of Savannah celebrates World Marriage Day annually with a special Gold and Silver Wedding Jubilee Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah for all couples married 25 or 50 years.
Couples must register for the celebration at their parish or online. An official invitation will then be sent by mail in January with detailed instructions for the day.
Savannah is home to a wide variety of accommodations ranging from chain hotels to charming, historic bed and breakfasts. This list is but a small sampling of the accommodations available within short walking or driving distance to the Cathedral.
