On March 3, after a day of reflection at the diocesan center (Maison Saint-Julien), couples preparing for marriage in the diocese of Le Mans made the short journey to the shrine of Blessed Basil Moreau for a prayer service presided over by Msgr. Yves Le Saux, bishop of Le Mans. The prayer service included a welcome by Fr. John De Riso, csc, rector of the shrine, readings from Sacred Scripture including the wedding feast of Cana, a homily by Msgr. Le Saux on the abundant love of God for humanity, and blessings of the engaged couples.
