Memorial Day 2015

Offices closed

The church offices will be closed on Monday, May 25, in observance of Memorial Day. On this Memorial Day let us pray for our veterans and men and women currently serving in our military for their dedicated service. We especially pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice of their lives in defense of our nation.

Mass Schedule

Also, please be aware that we will celebrate an 8:30 a.m. Mass ONLY.  We won’t have the regularly scheduled noon Mass nor confessions on Memorial Day.

Memorial Day Prayer

The following prayer, from Catholic Household Blessings & Prayers, can be used for private prayer on Memorial Day:

God of power and mercy,
you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,
that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters.
Keep in your mercy those men and women
who have died in the cause of freedom
and bring them safely
into your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
