St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in St. Paul Park celebrated couples who have been married 50 years or more during a special mass Tuesday.


The Rev. Greg Esty led the service, a church tradition for the past 18 years.

Those who have lost a married partner they were married to for 50 years were also invited to attend. Following the service, a luncheon was served in the parish activity center.

See the upcoming print edition of the Bulletin for more on the anniversary event.
