Volume 13 Issue 7 | May 23, 2024

Memorial Day (originally called Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day was previously observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day, particularly to honor those who died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. In keeping with this tradition, Our Lady of the Rosary is honored to be able to place a small flag on the plot of every veteran buried in the cemetery.

Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend
