Thank you veterans for your patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and
sacrifice for the common good.
Bishop Walkowiak led the celebration of a Mass for Veterans at West Catholic High School Bishop Walkowiak led the celebration of a Mass for Veterans at West Catholic High School Wed., Nov. 9. 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 military veterans as well as active duty members of all branches of military service. We celebrate their courage, offer our support and pray that the Lord will keep them safe. In prayer, we also ask that family and friends of our military members, as well as those who serve veterans and active duty military members and their families, will be strengthened, and that the nations of the world and their people will seek to work together in harmony and peace.
