Apostolic Blessing

We will celebrate World Day of Marriage during the weekend Masses on February 12th and 13th.  All married couples will be invited to receive a blessing by Father during that weekend.    To celebrate we would also like to treat our jubilarian couples with a special apostolic anniversary blessing from Pope Francis.   The Apostolic Blessing is a blessing imparted by the Pope, either directly or by delegation through others.  Each couple who is celebrating 10, 25, 50, or 50+ years in increments of 5 is invited to sign up to receive the apostolic blessing. 

Please note the couple should meet the following criteria:

  • is/are Catholic

  • is/are living a Christian life in accordance with the faith and with Catholic morals;

  • does/do not belong to non-Catholic religious groups or associations or organizations that are publicly opposed to the Catholic Church;

  • does/do not cohabit; is/are not married exclusively civilly; or divorced and remarried exclusively civilly

  • is/are not under any canonical penalty legitimately applied or declared;

  • does/do not hold public office or public roles.


To sign up to receive the apostolic blessing please sign up in the parish foyer, through the office or by visiting our parish website.  

Deadline to register is February 4, 2022 by 8:00 AM.

Should you have any questions, please contact Jessica Lubianski by email dre@stannlv.org or phone (830) 779-3131.
