MEMORIAL DAY

During  this Year of Mercy, “we are called to remember  everyone, even those who no one remembers,” says  Pope Francis. “We remember those who sacrificed their  lives to serve others. We especially entrust to the Lord,  those who have left us during the past year.” On  Memorial Day, come offer a spiritual work of mercy and  pray in loving memory of family, friends, and fellow  citizens who have given their lives for our freedom and  now experience their destiny in the love of Christ.  Special outdoor Masses will be held at 10 am on  Monday, May 30, on the sacred ground of the Catholic  cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Washington, including  Gate of Heaven Cemetery (13801 Georgia Avenue,  Silver Spring, MD, 301-871- 6500).
