VETERANS' GREEN AT ST. MARY CEMETERY
Our first Memorial Day Mass at Veterans' Green was held on May 28, 2011 with approximately 100 people in attendance. Fr. John and Fr. Seán concelebrated the Mass and blessed the war memorial (relocated from the front of St. John Cantius Church), the two memorial benches and the monuments that honor each of the six branches of the U.S. Military. Stan Zewski presented a history of the St. John Cantius war memorial. Special thanks to Richard and Adam Verock of Dorsey Memorials for donating their time to clean and relocate the St. John Cantius war memorial, to Jay and Bob Czelusniak and Chris Powers of Czelusniak Funeral Home for donating the flag pole, to the Holy Name Society of the former St. John Cantius Church and the Ceckowski family for the donation of the two memorial benches, and to Angie Fydenkevez for donating and planting the flowers. Thank you also to the members of the Veterans' Green Committee: Bob Gibowicz, Susan Royea, Chris Powers, Mike Ahearn, Dennis Livieratos and Eileen Sullivan - for designing and planning this special section of St. Mary Cemetery. Special thanks to Dennis Livieratos, our former Cemetery Superintendent, and his staff for all the work they did to get the Veterans' Green area ready for Memorial Day. We thank God for the gift of sunshine on Memorial Day, and we thank all of our veterans, living and deceased, for the tremendous sacrifices they have made and continue to make for all of us. We have sold 255 pavers that will form the walkway in the form of a cross. Thank you for your support.
