Annual Veteran’s Day Service
November 12, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
Please join us as we honor all veterans in this our 53rd annual Veterans’ Day Service. At this moving service of thanksgiving, we have the opportunity to show our appreciation for the service and sacrifice given by so many.
The guest speaker this year is the Reverend David W. Peters. David enlisted in the Marine Corps in his teens, finished college and seminary, and went to work as a youth minister in a suburban church in Pennsylvania. Shortly after 9/11 and the U.S. invasion of Iraq, David volunteered to serve as an Army Chaplain and deployed to Iraq in 2005. David started the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship, in the Diocese of Texas in 2014, to equip the Church for ministry to veterans with moral injury and the spiritual and theological effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The celebration will include music from our choir with traditional trumpet and bagpipe selections. A reception with light refreshments will follow the service.
