Honoring Our Veterans

We will be honoring our veterans at all Masses on November 9th and 10th. If you are a veteran and interested in carrying up the gifts during Mass or would like to honor a current or past member of the military, please send an email to the Parish Office at office@sjcmmd.org with the name of the veteran so we can include them in our special tribute. We are grateful to all the women and men who preserve our nation and our freedom to worship.

Prayer for Our Veterans

Dear Lord, today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women who gave their best
when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. 
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, 
for the sacrifices they made, for their many different contributions
to America’s victories over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them, we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
