Approximately 100 couples celebrated their 25th or 50th wedding anniversaries by attending an annual jubilee Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah Feb. 10. The Mass was held on World Marriage Day, which is celebrated on the second Sunday in February each year. 


When reflecting on the components of a successful marriage, many couples suggested that a shared religion isn’t necessarily one of them, as long as both partners have faith, prayer and a belief in God in common.
