We are all better for the members of our Armed Forces, past and present. Our country, our constitution and our way of life is protected in times of war and peace by those who have served.
On Monday, May 27 at 10 a.m., Bishop Gregory L. Parkes and other priests of the Diocese of St. Petersburg will gather at the outdoor altar to celebrate the holy sacrifice of the Mass. This memorial of the death and resurrection of Jesus, who freed mankind from the bonds of sin, is a perfect time to remember, honor and pray for those who have maintained the freedoms that we enjoy as United States citizens.
If you are able, please join us at Calvary Catholic Cemetery to say, “thank you for your service,” in prayer. If you cannot attend, please take a moment to pray for these brave women and men. There is plenty of seating in the shade of ancient oaks and under tents.
