THURSDAY, JULY 20, 1939 BTATHEVILLE, '(ARK.y COURIER NEWS > ' PAGE Figure In Mass Marriages 100 Weddings In One To 'Graduate' Students In Marriage Education BY A. W. O'BRIEN MONTREAL, Quebec, July 19 — One hundred "model couples," rig- Idly (rallied for a year In a sequence of marriage preparation courses, will be we'd !n a single ceremony In ancient Notre Dame church here on Sunday morning, July 23. Slyled to .offset', waves oC unfavorable publicity abput the marriage Institution, the 'muss marriage will highlight tlie/'joclst Congress, meeting of voting,'Catholic workers from Canada,'tl)e United States, and Europe. Following.} I will come an every-tliree-ihoiitiv.'check-up on the newly weds for : five years. Then Rev. Father Henri Roy plans to draft ji sort of textbook on marriage preparation and its results which will provide a guide lor future generations. Father Roy is tthe Joclst movement rounder. The name is taken from Initials of the association's French name, Jelinesse Ouvrierc Cathoiiquc (Young Catholic Worker). The 100 couples were selected from thousands or applicants in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Their curriculum of courses included such subjects as morals, economics, and medicine. SURVEY SHOWED IGNORANCE Last year Father Roy .started promoting his giant marriage scheme to prove to the world the Importance of careful and serious preparation for wedlock, lie hud been conducting a survey on matters pertaining to marriage. Here were his findings: 1. At least 50 per cent of the young people marrying today are not morally prepared. '2. Al least 20 per cent are not financially prepared to assume responsibilities of marriage. 3. In the great majority of eases', young people do not realize the importance of marriage, considering it an event determined by chance alone. 4. Tlie average young person knows little or nothing about (he necessity of or the procedure ot preparing for marriage by studying all the aspects or the venture. 5. False ideas about marriage and lack ot preparation is responsible for the vflst majority of separations " : "and: broken homes. The labor class would--not ; be so poor, mentally -mid morally,'if parents had'known their''duty'and lived up to it. The; report• on the \ survey, was circulated' throughout '- the' 'Joclst membership and an invitation submitted. tOTJoinMhe mass marriage.*-' ' " ' :' • : '. ';•' ' For the last..three nioiith's, training discussions have been taking the form of. • group lectures',-Wio-i mixed^-boys. "and"'-girls,?' if'or' 'boys only;' for girls only, and for individuals. Father Roy has toured extensively lo interview and lecture to each group and lifts been accompanied continually i>y s Dr Donat Voghet, well known physician and psychologist. FROM 17 TO 25 Ages of the young couples range between 17 and 25 years/ ';-.The future husbands earn on an avei- age of $25 per week and all are reasonably secure in their jobs. The ceremony will begin at St. James Basilica where the couples are to receive Holy Ccmmunion in a body. This vrilll be followed by registration—legal procedure required in Quebec. A hotel breakfast will be an intimate affair, with friends joining the couples at their own expense—the ccuples being guests of the Joclst organization. One hundred automobiles will carry the couples lo the church Brides will wear white veils rmd gowns, while the grooms will al be dressed in blue. At the church, the center aisle will have prayer-stools for tin couples, their witnesses, and tin celebrant priest In each instance At the church door, red and pin! flowers will bo distributed by Joe ists to the guesls. His Excellency, Msgr. GcVrges Gauthier, archbishop or Montreal, will preside at the ceremony and bless the unions, prayers will t>c spoken out loud throughout the ceremony and the Mass that follows. After the service, a luncheon will be held at St. Helen's Island —the honor table being occupied by the couples. Sets of rosaries, personally blessed by Pope Pius XII..will be presented to each bride. The grooms will receive crucifixes. "History and our exhaustive survey and personal experience," says Father noy, "have convinced us that very few early marriages ever fail. In youth, one is eager to succeed and gives all his energy to that end. When the mature years have been reached the young husband has stability—and firmly implanted Ideas. "Courtship is the barometer of marriage—if the future husband is not moral and generally irresponsible during courtship, it is folly for the girl to expect him to change afterwards. I know ot young men who took oul oilier girls a week before their marriage. They don't change. All of these 100 couples have been thoroughly prepared —they'll make f\ go ol 111" Famous among "mass marriages" are (hose held In Italy uml?r sponsorship of Mussolini.
