Fall is heating up with events in the Diocese of Duluth, with the Diocesan Assembly, two events sponsored by the Office of Marriage and Family Life and a Mass to mark the beginning of the diocese’s 125th anniversary celebration all coming in October.
The Diocesan Assembly will be held Oct. 4 at Marshall School, featuring speaker Thomas Smith, and a mini-retreat for newly married couples will be held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary Sunday, Oct. 5. That same Sunday at the Cathedral, Bishop Paul Sirba will celebrate a Mass to mark the diocese’s 125th anniversary at 4 p.m.
While early registration deadlines have passed for both the Diocesan Assembly and the mini-retreat for newly married couples, it is still possible to register. See the diocesan website for details.
Also, on Oct. 19, the diocese will host an anniversary Mass and luncheon for couples celebrating marriage milestones of 10, 20, 25, 30 and 40 ... years of marriage. Early registration is Oct. 6, and lunch reservations close Oct. 13, but the event may fill before then.
