Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes

Filed under: Holy Cross Blog — holycross-blog @ 9:08 pm

As the country prepares to celebrate Memorial Day, Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery  will join thousands of Catholic Cemeteries across the United States in a national celebration, “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes.”  This national program, developed by the Catholic Cemetery Conference, will honor those men and women who died while serving in the armed forces, as well as recognize both our active military and military veterans who have served our country.

At Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Colma, members of Cub Scouts of Pack 347 and Girl Scouts of Troop 31971 will place American flags at the gravesites in the military section (Star of the Sea) in preparation for Memorial Day.  On Monday, May 29th at 11am, Most.Rev. William J. Justice, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco will celebrate Mass at Holy Cross Mausoleum for all the faithful departed.  The local celebration will also include the presentation of the colors by the Cub Scouts and Girls Scouts and the opportunity for cemetery visitors to remember loved ones by writing messages on tribute cards.

Local author, Jean Bartlett, will be available in Holy Cross Mausoleum before and after Mass to autograph her new book about Holy Cross Veterans “Roll Call – Reveille.” Books will be available for sale.

Also at 11am on Monday the 30th, Mass will be celebrated at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery in San Rafael by Fr. Brian Costello and at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Menlo Park by Fr. Christopher Fadok and Fr. Larry Goode.  At 9:30am, Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Cemetery in Half Moon Bay by Fr. Gabriel Wanker.

We hope you will join the Catholic Cemeteries in celebrating Memorial Day this year.
