2019 Diocesan Memorial Day Mass “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes”
Our Lady of Angels Cemetery Hosed Memorial Day Mass with Bishop Emeritus Howard J. Hubbard
As the country celebrated Memorial Day, Our Lady of Angels Cemetery joined 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, honors men and women who died while serving in the armed forces, as well as recognizing both active duty military and veterans.
Bishop Emeritus Howard J. Hubbard celebrated Mass at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 27 at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery, 1389 Central Avenue in Colonie. Veterans served as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers, and participated in the presentation of gifts. Veterans attending the Mass were offered special lapel pins.
Visitors were also welcome to stop in and visit the new Catholic Monument Design Center located at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery.
