Pastor's Message


From Bishop Mark O’Connell

Make your New Year’s Eve special by having your Marriage Blessed in the presence of God.

If you are married, but not in the Catholic Church, you are invited to a Marriage Validation Ceremony Officiated by Bishop Mark O’Connell Friday, December 31, 2021 at 6:00 PM Saint Theresa Church, 63 Winter St., North Reading

Celebrate the sanctity of marriage by ending 2021 in this wonderful way, and together look forward to the blessings of 2022. During the wedding ceremony, each couple will say their vows separately before Bishop O’Connell and their two witnesses.

To get more information about how to register, please contact the Regional Bishop’s Office at 978-531-1013 or northregion@rcab.org.

There is no cost to the couple. Since 2018 over 20 couples have participated in this joyous event.
