CRAFTSBURY – Joseph and Jeannine Young of Craftsbury celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary on Saturday, June 26, beginning with the 6 p.m. Mass at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Craftsbury.
By coincidence, the traveling “Our Lady of Fatima” Statue from Fatima, Portugal, dressed in white, with a white veil, was present for the Mass. Fr. Thomas Aquinas gave the couple a blessing and presented them with a 50th Wedding Anniversary Certificate from The Most Reverend Christopher Coyne, Bishop of Burlington. Bernie Lussier and Alice Perron supplied music for the Mass. Family and friends gathered in the church hall for a reception following the Mass. The couple was married on June 26, 1971, at St. Norbert Church in Hardwick.
