Today at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, married couples gathered together to celebrate their unions of anywhere from 25 years to over 50. The bishop presided over today's marriage jubilee where 75 couples were in attendance, representing 23 different churches in the diocese...the longest married couple was from abilene and is going 71 years strong. We spoke with a Midland couple of 67 years who says the best way to keep a marriage is by perservering through the tough times,and working out any problems openly and honestly. A highlight in today's service- all married couples stood, joined hands and made a recommitment of being married in front of the congregation and God.
