St. Mary's Honors Veterans

On November 10th in recognition of Veterans' Day,  St. Mary's Episcopal Church honored the members of the congregation who served the United States as members of the military.  Veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines were recognized, and of the fourteen veterans present, their respective service ran the gamut from World War II through Operation Enduring Freedom.    The Rev. Carol Gadsden, Rector of St. Mary's, wrote a prayer for the occasion and individually blessed each veteran in thanksgiving for his service.
