Veterans Memorial Mass – Saturday, May 19 at 4pm at St. Paul

FlagsAll military veterans are cordially invited to attend a special Veterans Ecumenical Memorial Mass at St. Paul Church at 4:00pm on Saturday, May 19 (Armed Forces Day.) Organized by the Wellesley Veterans’ Council, this annual event brings Wellesley veterans together as part of the 20th Annual Wellesley Wonderful Weekend (May 19 & 20). Veterans are invited (but not required) to wear their uniforms. We will gather in the St. Paul foyer and process in with the celebrant to reserved seats down front. During the Mass we will remember those veterans from Wellesley who gave their lives for our country.  We salute your service to our country and look forward to seeing you at the 4:00 Mass at St. Paul on May 19.

Appreciation Weekend May 19-20

All Masses will be in Thanksgiving for you who make our parish all that it is and continues to become!
