50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

We are always excited to celebrate the jubilee anniversary Mass for couples married 50 years. This Mass is celebrated at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Cleveland.  

On Sunday, June 9, 2024 at 2:00 PM, we will celebrate with all couples married in 1974.  Everyone is invited and may bring family with them. Doors open at 1:30 PM. 

This is NOT a ticketed event. There is no registration required.

We encourage folks to reach out to their pastor to recognize their Jubilarian Celebrations in a personalized way; perhaps a special blessing at a Mass or an announcement in the parish bulletin.

Event Details

  • Parking is available on the surface lot off of Rockwell, next to the Cathedral.
  • Parking can also be found in the garage next to the Cathedral.
  • Handicapped seating available.
  • A picture opportunity with Bishop will take place on the Superior Avenue side of the Cathedral following Mass.
  • We also invite you to take pictures around the Cathedral in the alcoves etc. 
  • WE DO NOT HIRE A PHOTOGRAPHER. Photos are on your own.
