Couples celebrating milestone anniversaries joined Bishop Koenig for the annual Wedding Anniversary Mass on Feb. 12 at St. Margaret of Scotland Church in Newark.

The Mass was held on World Marriage Sunday, which coincides with National Marriage Week.

The Mass is for couples celebrating their fifth anniversary or any five-year interval after that, and for any anniversary beyond the 50th.

Dale and Marie Buley, parishioners of St. John Neumann in Berlin, Md., were the longest married couple at this year’s Mass at 68 years.

About 120 couples joined Bishop Koenig as he led renewal of vows.

The bishop posed for photos with couples at the event.
