May 4, 2019

What a joy-filled celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage on May 4, 2019 at our 4:30 pm Mass! – Twenty-six couples celebrated 1,144 years of married life! They stood before their families and the St. Giles Community of Faith and renewed the promises they made to each other on their wedding day.
