REFLECTIONS FOR HEALING AND HOPE

MEMORIAL DAY

MONDAY MAY 27, 2013

at 9 AM

SISTER CITIES BRIDGE

GENESEE CROSSROADS PARK

This Memorial Day Service is a remembrance of all who have died in the current wars, as well as a remembrance of the preciousness and beauty of all life. Our hope is that the memory of each life is held in an embrace of dignity and compassion, and in that remembrance there is comfort for the grieving and healing for all of humanity so that peace may come.
