Note corrected time for cemetery service. Cemetery Service follows 8 a.m. Mass.
On Memorial Day we pray specifically for those who have died in our nation’s wars; for their souls and the special sacrifice they made for our nation. Those brave soldiers whom we commemorate heroically gave their lives to defend freedom, and their sacrifices are worthy of public memorial as well as private awe.
Memorial Day has also become a special time to remember all those loved ones who now live in the eternal peace of God’s heavenly kingdom.
A Memorial Day Mass will be held on Monday, May 29, at 8 a.m. Mass will be followed by a cemetery service with Honor Guard ceremony. The cemetery is open for families to reflect and spend in prayer, remembering their loved ones that have passed.
The Holy Name of Jesus parish and school offices will be closed on this day, Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day.
