WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of married couples are celebrating their wedding anniversaries this weekend alongside Cardinal Donald Wuerl.

The Archbishop of Washington celebrated a special Mass on Sunday for couples celebrating at least 25 years of marriage. One couple marked 74 years together, and 11 have been married for 70 or more years.

The archdiocese says more than 850 couples representing parishes from across the archdiocese registered to have their anniversaries recognized this year.

The couples renewed their vows at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. They also received personalized certificates following the Mass.
