The 2nd Annual “Serving God & Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes”


Program:

Catholic Cemetery Conference National Memorial Day Program “Serving God & Country: A Memorial Day Salute to our Heroes�

Date:

May 26, 2014

Summary:

Hundreds of thousands of Catholic across the United States participated in the 2nd Annual CCC National Memorial Day Program at Catholic Cemeteries throughout America on Monday, May 26, 2014. While preliminary CCC numbers are still being compiled, we estimate several hundred Catholic Cemeteries participated in the program. Many cemeteries utilized the CCC National Program to expand their existing Memorial Day programs, or to start a new program, while others simply included a CCC Memorial Day program component, and participated in the national celebration. While we are still compiling overall numbers, and need to strengthen communications between individual properties and the CCC/G&S, this overall program provides a consistent, unified program for all Catholic Cemeteries in the U.S., under the CCC umbrella.

NJ Catholics honor American veterans with Memorial Day cemetery Mass Peggy McGlone May 26, 2014 Before firing up the grills or heading to the pool or beach, thousands of New Jerseyans honored America’s veterans by attending morning Mass in their honor at seven cemeteries across the state. “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to our Heroes” featured 11 a.m. Masses in seven New Jersey cemeteries, including those in Jersey City, Colonia, East Orange, Franklin Lakes and Mahwah. Archbishop John Myers celebrated Mass under a tent at Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington, where almost 1,000 people gathered to commemorate the service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. Despite the beautiful blue skies, Mass at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover was held in the Chapel Mausoleum, where almost all of the 450 folding chairs were filled with casually-dressed worshippers of all ages. “We come to give thanks to those who gave their lives for our country, our freedom, and all the values that we treasure and appreciate,” Bishop Edgar daCunha said at the start of the celebration, which included five con-celebrants escorted by three members of the Knights of Columbus. In his homily, the Rev. Anthony Sargent of Delbarton thanked the congregation for starting their day with prayer. “For some this is a day off, to many it marks the beginning of summer,” Sargent said. “But this day is a celebration because we are asked to remember the fallen men and women of our military who fought to the death to preserve our freedom.” “Mass is the greatest prayer for the dead,” he said. Sargent asked the worshippers to also remember the families of those who didn’t return, and he urged them to care for those who did because they may be suffering from invisible scars. In addition, he


mentioned the news of waiting lists for veterans to receive needed medical services and he called on the country to do better. “It is with that intention that we celebrate today,” he said. The national program is sponsored by the Catholic Cemetery Conference and aims to involve active military and veterans in Memorial Day celebrations, organizers said. More than 1,000 Catholic cemeteries around the country were expected to participate in the program’s second year. “We are honored to be participating in this program and are blessed to have the opportunity to celebrate the men and women who have sacrificed in order to defend the rights of all to freedom, justice and peace,” Andrew Schafer, executive director of the Archdiocese of Newark Catholic Cemeteries, said. Although the national program is new, Gate of Heaven has been hosting a Memorial Day Mass for more than a decade. Four silver-haired Murphy siblings have attended for years. “It’s become like a tradition for us. We come every year,” said Sister Mary Bernadette of Convent Station, who was sitting with Eleanor Murphy Valvano of Clifton, Kathleen Murphy of Madison and John Murphy of Union. Their parents, Mary and Joseph Murphy, are buried at Gate of Heaven, as is John’s wife Marie, she said. And their uncle, William Connors, who served in World War II, is there, too. They visit the graves and usually go out together after. “It’s good to come on Memorial Day to honor the veterans who give all for the country,” Valvano said. And we remember all our relatives who are here, too.” “It’s a beautiful place,” Valvano said, “and it’s always a beautiful Mass.”

Memorial Day has become synonymous with sales and vacations, but local Catholic cemeteries are honoring fallen and living veterans to make sure it means more than that. “It is important because we need to stop and honor those who served our county. We are enjoying the fruits of their sacrifice,� said Richard Peterson, director of Associated Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Seattle. And praying for the dead is a spiritual work of mercy, he said.


Special observances are planned at the four archdiocesan cemeteries: Gethsemane in Federal Way, Holyrood in Shoreline, Calvary in Seattle and St. Patrick in Kent. At each cemetery, a large “tribute board” — 6 feet tall and 12-18 feet long — has been erected so people can write messages or prayers in honor of departed friends and relatives. The boards are available for two weeks. “It is surprising how moving it is to see people put touching little tributes on the boards,” Peterson said. “Even those who don’t have relatives buried in our cemeteries come and remember their loved ones buried somewhere else.” On Memorial Day, May 26, the four cemeteries will mark the day with Mass in English at 10:30 a.m. Veterans and active military personnel are invited to recite the intercessions, followed by a moment of silence. Each cemetery will have a wreath-laying ceremony and (except for St. Patrick Cemetery) a military honor guard. Before Mass at each cemetery, a deacon who served in the military will offer a brief commentary. “It is moving for me as a deacon and a solider to honor our veterans,” said Deacon Roy Harrington, who will speak at Calvary Cemetery. “We don’t do enough to support our warriors, living and dead.” Also in observance of Memorial Day, Gethsemane Cemetery will have a Mass in Vietnamese at 1 p.m. May 26 and Holyrood Cemetery will have a Vietnamese Mass at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 24, and a Mass in Korean at 1 p.m. Monday, May 26. The local events are part of “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes,” a program started in 2013 by the National Catholic Cemetery Conference. More than 1,000 cemeteries participated last year and more are expected to join the effort this year. Dennis Fairbank, executive director of the national conference, said he is proud that the Catholic Church is “out in front” in preserving the traditional meaning of Memorial Day. “The thing that really comes through, and I think moves me the most, is the appreciation of the families,” Fairbank said. “Spending time on the weekend for a Mass of remembrance means a great deal to them.”

NJ Catholics honor American veterans with Memorial Day cemetery Mass Peggy McGlone May 26, 2014 Before firing up the grills or heading to the pool or beach, thousands of New Jerseyans honored America’s veterans by attending morning Mass in their honor at seven cemeteries across the state. “Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to our Heroes” featured 11 a.m. Masses in seven New Jersey cemeteries, including those in Jersey City, Colonia, East Orange, Franklin Lakes and Mahwah. Archbishop John Myers celebrated Mass under a tent at Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington, where almost 1,000 people gathered to commemorate the service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. Despite the beautiful blue skies, Mass at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover was held in the Chapel Mausoleum, where almost all of the 450 folding chairs were filled with casually-dressed worshippers of all ages. “We come to give thanks to those who gave their lives for our country, our freedom, and all the values that we treasure and appreciate,” Bishop Edgar daCunha said at the start of the celebration, which included five con-celebrants escorted by three members of the Knights of Columbus. In his homily, the Rev. Anthony Sargent of Delbarton thanked the congregation for starting their day with prayer. “For some this is a day off, to many it marks the beginning of summer,” Sargent said. “But this day is a celebration because we are asked to remember the fallen men and women of our military who fought to the death to preserve our freedom.” “Mass is the greatest prayer for the dead,” he said. Sargent asked the worshippers to also remember the families of those who didn’t return, and he urged


them to care for those who did because they may be suffering from invisible scars. In addition, he mentioned the news of waiting lists for veterans to receive needed medical services and he called on the country to do better. “It is with that intention that we celebrate today,” he said. The national program is sponsored by the Catholic Cemetery Conference and aims to involve active military and veterans in Memorial Day celebrations, organizers said. More than 1,000 Catholic cemeteries around the country were expected to participate in the program’s second year. “We are honored to be participating in this program and are blessed to have the opportunity to celebrate the men and women who have sacrificed in order to defend the rights of all to freedom, justice and peace,” Andrew Schafer, executive director of the Archdiocese of Newark Catholic Cemeteries, said. Although the national program is new, Gate of Heaven has been hosting a Memorial Day Mass for more than a decade. Four silver-haired Murphy siblings have attended for years. “It’s become like a tradition for us. We come every year,” said Sister Mary Bernadette of Convent Station, who was sitting with Eleanor Murphy Valvano of Clifton, Kathleen Murphy of Madison and John Murphy of Union. Their parents, Mary and Joseph Murphy, are buried at Gate of Heaven, as is John’s wife Marie, she said. And their uncle, William Connors, who served in World War II, is there, too. They visit the graves and usually go out together after. “It’s good to come on Memorial Day to honor the veterans who give all for the country,” Valvano said. And we remember all our relatives who are here, too.” “It’s a beautiful place,” Valvano said, “and it’s always a beautiful Mass.”

At a previous Sisters of Charity Civil War Memorial.

The 2 pm Civil War Commemoration will be held on May 24th at the Cedars Auditorium at the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse at Mount St. Joseph, and will include music by the Hills of Kentucky Dulcimers, prayer, and a choral reading first performed in 1961 for the 100th anniversary of the Civil War. Light refreshments will be served. “Almost as soon as the Civil War began there was a critical need for nurses,” says Sr. Georgia Kitt, SC, spokeswoman for the congregation. “As troops began to assemble at places like nearby Camp Dennison, contagious diseases swept through the camps. Within months battles began to rage and casualties mounted. The Sisters of Charity of


Cincinnati, many experienced nurses at St. John’s Hospital in Cincinnati, were called upon immediately and served through the duration of the war.” About half the 100 sisters served on the eastern front in parts of Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland, and on the western front in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia, Sr. Kitt says. “Sisters nursed in army encampments, on battlefields, in tent hospitals, on floating hospitals transporting the sick and wounded, and in hotels, schools and warehouses transformed into hospitals. Although serving with the Grand Army of the Republic, they treated both Union and Confederate soldiers.” For information contact Sr. Judith Metz, (513) 347-4058 or email Judith.metz@srcharitycinti.org.

We were very encouraged by the overwhelming response to last years program as more than 1,000 cemeteries across the country participated, said Carol Giambalvo, President, Catholic Cemetery Conference. It is an honor to be part of a national program that acknowledges the commitment each soldier has made to our Country as part of a long, inspiring history of self-giving, service, and the risk of the ultimate sacrifice. Participating cemeteries will invite active military and veterans to participate in Memorial Day Mass, and other cemetery-related activities throughout the weekend, including Wreath Laying Ceremonies, Tribute Boards and Military Choirs, among others. The Catholic War Veterans of America and the Knights of Columbus are also expected to participate in this national celebration. The Catholic Cemetery Conference program, Serving God and Country: A Memorial Day Salute to Our Heroes, is an opportunity for Catholics throughout the United States to unite in a meaningful way to remember and pray for those loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice, and also to recognize and involve our veterans, and our active military who continue to serve our country The Catholic Cemetery Conference (CCC) is an association established in 1949 consisting of Catholic Cemeteries from Archdioceses and Dioceses located primarily the U.S. and Canada, but also with members in Australia, Guam and Puerto Rico.
