Wreaths Across America-Dec. 15

Nov 25, 2018

POP Knights of Columbus will be holding a special ceremony this December 15 at our columbarium to honor deceased veterans. It’s called “Wreaths Across America” and it is celebrated across the country on this date at Arlington National Cemetery as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 US states, at sea and aboard. Wreaths will be placed on the pillars of the columbarium to represent the branches of the armed services as well as one for POW/MIA service men and women.

The POP ceremony begins promptly at 11 am (please arrive by 10:45am) and everyone is welcome. We especially encourage our active and retired military to attend as well as their extended family. If you have a loved one in military service or have lost a loved one in military service, please join us. The mission of Wreaths Across America is to “Remember, Honor and Teach” and it is a beautiful example of stewardship for us all.
