EUGENE — Couples gathered at St. Jude Church here for a special Valentine’s Day celebration, just before the big snowstorm arrived.

The evening started with a couple’s Mass, followed by a gathering in the parish hall.  
“This was a great time to make new friends, visit with old friends, and eat great food,” said one parishioner.

Here are some numbers from the evening:  43 couples had a combined 1,497½ years of marriage for an average of 34.8 years per couple.

 Longest married couple is Ed and Kitty Stout at 63 years. Newest married couple at 2 years is Karen and Gabriel DelValle.  

One of Pope Francis’ February homilies focused on marriage as part of God’s plan for man and woman and as a reflection of God’s faithful love.
