Looking for names of our deceased Veterans for Memorial Day - 05/11/2022

UPDATE from May 19th: The initial response has been very active and positive with over 100 names of Veterans submitted.  Additionally two names were forwarded of Veterans who died during service in World War II:  William Liolin (Army, WWII) who was from the St. Nicholas parish in Jamaica Estates, NY, and Victor Peristere (Navy, WWII) was from St. Mary's Assumption parish in Worcester, MA.  Reminder, the last day to forward names to Louise Gallagher is by Thurs, May 26th (contact info below).


St. George is looking to collect and put together a list of all the names of our deceased military veterans from the parish family.  

Memorial Day is a holiday that was established to officially remember those who have died in service to our country (Veterans Day was established to officially thank our living veterans).  St. George believes we only have one military serviceman, Michael J. Vani, who died in service during World War II.

On Sunday, May 29th (the day before Memorial Day), St. George will have a Memorial Service for all the deceased veterans of our parish family.  We are defining our “parish family” to include those who have joined our parish who may also have relatives that served in the military and are now deceased (the military veteran was not necessarily a member at St. George).

We are asking parishioners to forward the names of the men or women, who are deceased and served in one of the branches of the US armed forces.

Ideally, we are looking to collect some additional information with the names; their service branch, and if possible, the calendar years they served. 

Please forward this information to Louise Gallagher by Thursday, May 26th. Louise can be reached via email at or by phone at 203-268-3803.
