As a community service project, St. Stanislaus UYA is partnering with Wreaths Across America to support their mission to Remember, Honor and Teach about America’s veterans.  On December 15, 2018, we will have a wreath-laying ceremony at our cemetery on Kane Street in conjunction with ones occurring at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

We will be selling wreaths now through November 30th so that each veteran at rest in our cemetery will be honored and remembered. We have started the task of counting and identifying each veteran’s marker.  To date we have counted well over 250 graves, and we know there are more.  Please help us by sharing your loved one’s names with us so they can be counted.

We hope you will support this effort by donating $15 to sponsor a wreath in honor of or in memory of an American hero and show our veterans and their families that we will not forget.  For each wreath sold, the UYA will earn $5.

The UYA will have a table set up after each 9:30 mass now through the end of November to accept donations.  You can also contact Maria Hughes or any UYA member for more information.  To read more about Wreaths Across America’s mission, go to wreathsacrossamerica.org.  Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important project.
