Cardinal to Honor Military Chaplains for Holiday
Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley will celebrate Memorial Day by offering thanksgiving for the Boston priests who serve as military chaplains.
Right now, 12 priests from the Boston Archdiocese are serving as military chaplains, and 300 of Boston's priests have worked in the military since World War II.
The archdiocese's Catholic Appeal team has produced a video tribute to the chaplains to spread awareness about their work.
O'Malley said the archdiocese is proud to provide priests for what he called an "important ministry" providing pastoral care and a supportive presence to military members.
He said Memorial Day is a time to pray for everyone serving in the armed forces and remember those who have given their lives.
