On Memorial Day we honor the memory of the armed forces members who died fighting for their country.
This Memorial Day we join together in prayer with all those who have served our country. Both veterans and those currently serving in the military have our heartfelt blessings and deepest gratitude. Remember your loved ones, living and deceased, this Memorial Day by requesting a Mass in their honor.
When you request a Mass for a loved one or special intention, we will offer the Eucharist for your petition during our Sunday morning Mass at the National Shrine of St. Jude this Memorial Day weekend.
Jesus said “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Those lives lost in the line of duty are an ongoing example of the love of our service men and women for us and our country. May God bless you and your loved ones.
