Bishop Walkowiak led the Catholic Central High School community in the celebration of a Mass for veterans Wed., Nov. 11 at 9:30 a.m. at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. The public was invited to attend.
Veterans Day is observed annually in the U.S. on November 11. Life in the U.S. affords us many freedoms, not the least of which is religious freedom. These freedoms have been fought for and defended by courageous men and women throughout the history of our country.
On Veterans Day and every day let us recognize gratefully the sacrifices of all military veterans as well as active duty members of the service. We celebrate their courage, offer our support and pray that the Lord will keep them safe from harm; that the families, relatives and friends of our military members will be strengthened and that the nations of the world and their people will seek to work together in harmony and peace.
