We started with a celebration of the Holy Mass with Fr. Michael where we had a renewal of our marriage vows as couples. From couples who were just starting the journey of married life, to the ones who have been through the highs and lows of it all, we said our solemn vows in front of God and to our partners.
Afterwards, the husbands had a "surprise" number where we gave roses to our partners and sang a song. It was our first and final practice. But that's not the end of it. The event continues.
We proceeded to have our dinner and while at our romantic spots, we were serenaded by the Verbum Dei music ministry with love songs that inspired us and reminded us of our love story. In the middle of each song number, there were some dynamics and sharings by some of the couples on what was the most memorable experience they had with each other. So kilig! :)
It was really a worthwhile experience and I felt that though it was just a short evening, it has encouraged me to treasure the sacrament that God has called me to live each day with my wife: the sacrament of Matrimony.
