Memorial Day 2018

Posted on June 06, 2018 in: News

We Remember

“In this sacred space we honor our military men and women with this Votive Mass for the Preservation and Protection of Peace and Justice. Those who defend our country and defend our freedoms do so not to be aggressive but to protect our freedoms and justice. May all who have fought for our freedoms know the rewards of everlasting life.”
Bishop Michael R. Cote

The overcast skies and the threat of rain didn’t discourage the over one hundred people who attended the Memorial Day Mass held at Saint Mary Cemetery on Jefferson Avenue. Bishop Michael R. Cote. D.D. concelebrated Mass along with priests of the New London Deanery.

Mass was concelebrated in Norwich at Saint Joseph Cemetery on Boswell Avenue by Vicar General, Monsignor Leszek T. Janik, J.C.L., along with priests of the Norwich Deanery.
