Hundreds of local couples celebrating milestone anniversaries renewed their vows Sunday.

Cardinal Daniel Dinardo -- Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston -- led a special mass honoring marriage at downtown Houston's Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.

Officials said 350 Catholic couples celebrated 50 years of marriage and 350 more marked their 25th anniversaries.

The Archdiocese has been holding these wedding masses for the past 49 years.
