Memorial Day - Remembering our Deceased Veterans - 2024

On Sunday, May 26th, St. George recognized Memorial Day by praying for all 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. St. George expanded our remembrance to include all the deceased veterans of our “parish family”, adding relatives of our parish family that served in the military and are now deceased. We also wish to thank the living military veterans who participated during the Memorial Service by standing in vigil (Veterans Day was established to officially thank our living veterans).  Prayers were said for 105 deceased veterans - click onto the following to view the list of names: St George - Names of Deceased Military Veterans.  Memory Eternal!  Below please find a  few photos from the service.
