Memorial Day: A Catholic Perspective

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day and remember those who have fallen while serving our country. It is a civil holiday, but "has religious overtones" Archbishop Broglio, who serves as the leader of the Archdiocese of Military Services, says. Watch this video to learn more about Memorial Day from a Catholic perspective.

We hope all of our MOCAN members enjoy the long weekend - the Missouri Catholic Conference will be closed on Monday in observance of the holiday.
