On Veterans Day, our nation acknowledges the contributions of all individuals who have served or are serving in the armed forces. We ask parishioners to write the name of any family member or friend and his/her military branch (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy) and whether they are active or retired. I know that in our school community we have many people who have sacrificed for our freedom.
Let us take a moment to say a prayer of gratitude for those who have served and for all whose lives have been forever changed due to war. We invite veterans to join us on Monday, November 13th at 1:00 p.m. in the school gym for a ceremony prepared by the students recognizing the contributions that they have made to our country. Parents and parishioners are welcome to attend. If you or they can attend our assembly on November 13, 2017, please feel free to wear your uniform.
