A Tribute to our Catholic Veterans!
Each year on November 11, we observe Veterans Day and remember all those who have served our country in times of war.
Among those veterans are our military chaplains. Five military chaplains, all of them Catholics, have received the Medal of Honor since the Civil War. Two of them are on the path to sainthood as their stories of bravery have touched people the world over. Their example inspires a new generation of men to be chaplains as well.
Four Catholic military chaplains have also been recognized for bravery in the line of duty with United States Navy ships named in their honor.
For more information, visit the USCCB.
We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in serving on a Safety committee or an Evangelization Committee. The Safety Committee makes recommendations regarding safety issues in our churches. The Evangelization Committee actively evangelizes in our church and local communities using various resources available, and makes recommendations and plans for future evangelization efforts.
