Marriage event set in Dickinson

The 14th annual Celebration of Marriage will be Sept. 20 at the Church of St. Joseph in Dickinson.

The event is sponsored by the Diocese of Bismarck and includes Mass at noon EDT with Bismarck Bishop David Kagan and a luncheon following Mass. All registered couples will receive a certificate of congratulations and a photo with Kagan. Photos will begin at 10 a.m. at the church.

“Strengthening marriage and families is a top priority of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and this yearly event is one example of the Church’s support of marriage between one man and one woman as well as support of the family,” said Joyce McDowall, director of the Office of Family Ministry for the Diocese of Bismarck.

Attendees should pre-register by calling (701) 204-7185 by Sept. 15. Online registration is available at
