Memorial Day Commemoration

Monday, May 30, 2022  11:00am  03:00pm


A recognition of Memorial Day, with a brief 11 AM ceremony in the church, followed by a tour of the historic cemetery, exploring the lives and service of many veterans buried at St. Paul’s.  There will also be a special presentation at 12:30 by music historian Robert Cohen chronicling the music and songs of World War II, with sound recordings and historical commentary.  At 2 PM, Park Ranger Michael Callahan narrates the strange but true story of the World War II experiences of William Ross, a Mt. Vernon resident who flew bomber missions for the Royal Canadian Air Force.  Both of those presentations help to illuminate themes from the current feature exhibition at St. Paul’s, “A Special Role: St. Paul’s Church and World War II.”
