Memorial Day Service


In honor of our deceased Military service men and women, Saint John's hosts a special ceremony on Memorial Day at the Saint John's Abbey Cemetery.

To remember and honor their service, United States flags will be placed at each of the 127 veterans' grave sites for the Memorial Day weekend. In addition, on Memorial Day -- Monday, May 27th at 11:15 a.m. -- Fr. Greg Miller along with volunteers from the St. John the Baptist Parish and members of the St. Joseph American Legion will conduct the ceremony that will include prayer, a roll call of the deceased veterans here at Saint John's, followed by the playing of "Taps" and a military gun salute.

All family and friends and anyone wishing to honor these deceased veterans are welcome to gather at the cemetery to participate in this event.
