Thank you, Lt. Col. Roche for extending this invite with us from:
The Very Reverend S. Scott Hunter, D.Min. Dean, Cathedral Church of St.Paul LCDR Robert W. Prout, USNR Retired Chairman, Veterans’ Service Committee
“It is our great pleasure to share with you that the Cathedral Church of St. Paul will host its 56th Veterans’ Day Service at the Cathedral on Sunday, November 10th, 2019 at 4:00 pm.
The emphasis of this service is thanksgiving – an expression of our profound appreciation for all who have served the pursuit of freedom and peace in service to their country, regardless of their race, religion or ethnic background. To this end, we include all who have served in the armed forces of the United States, Canada and our Allied Nations. We also honor those who serve in state and local police and fire departments.
We are extremely pleased to share with you that our speaker this year will be the Rev’d Bonnie A. Perry. On June 1 she was elected by the Diocesan Convention of the Diocese of Michigan to become the 11th Bishop of the Diocese. The daughter of a Marine Corps Lt. Colonel, Bishop-elect Perry comes to the Diocese from Chicago where she has served All Saints’ Parish for 26 years. This is one of her first official events in the Diocese.
If you have never attended one of these services, we urge you to do so. From the solemn procession accompanied by bagpipes and organ, to the bugler’s playing of Taps and Last Post, to the concluding hymn, you’ll find it both moving and inspiring, and a fitting tribute to all those who have served our country. A reception with light refreshments will follow the service.
If you and members of your organization would like to participate as a group, please contact us so appropriate arrangements can be made. You can reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; you can also call the Cathedral office at 313-831-5000 and ask to speak with Cindy Greening, or you are welcome to contact Bob Prout at 586-242-8181. Participating groups need to arrive by 3:00 pm.
The Cathedral is located at 4800 Woodward Avenue (at the southeast corner of Woodward & Warren), in the heart of Detroit’s midtown Cultural Center. It is easily accessed by proceeding a few blocks west on Warren from the I-75 Warren exit (first exit south of I-94). Free, lighted parking is available behind the Cathedral, accessible from East Warren Avenue via Cathedral Lane.
Whether a group, or an individual, who seeks a way to say “thank you”, to offer prayers for comrades still serving, or to remember those who have fallen, all are welcome. We look forward to seeing you Nov. 10th.
Grace and peace,”
The Very Reverend S. Scott Hunter, D.Min.
