Diocesan Memorial Day Mass “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes”

Our Lady of Angels Cemetery, Colonie, NY

As the country celebrates Memorial Day, Our Lady of Angels Cemetery joins 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.

Please join us on Monday, May 29, 10am at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery, 1389 Central Avenue in Colonie, outside, under a large tent, rain or shine. Veterans are invited each year to serve as lectors and Eucharistic Ministers, and participate in the presentation of gifts. Veterans attending the Mass were offered special lapel pins.

For more information about our Memorial Day Mass including volunteer opportunities for the service, please call (518) 374-5319.
