Renewal of marriage vows in Siddhpur parish


18th December 2016 was a special day for the families in Siddhpur parish. Six couples came with special costumes in order to renew their marital vows for better Christmas celebration. After the homily each couple came before the priest and in front of the homely congregation to renew their vows and bless and wear their wedding rings in a solemn manner. Thereafter they honoured each other with useful towels. Each family was given a copy of ‘Amoris Laetitia’ The Joy of Love, the papal document on Family. Fr. Xavier James explained the document prior to that. After the Eucharist and lighting of advent wreath all joined and cut cake and fed each other. Thus it was a joyous occasion for each domestic church in Siddhpur parish. (18/12/2016)
