From the Desk of President McKay
As we close out the month of October we find ourselves in the midst of two important days to Hibernians. All Saints’ Day on November 1st and Veterans Day on November 11th. With this in mind we are sending you an article from Jim Green, National Veterans Affairs Chairman and Bill Lehn, Ohio State Catholic Action Chairman.
Brother Lehn reminds us “All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1 and generally, All Saints’ Day is a Catholic Holy Day of Obligation, meaning all Catholics are required to attend Mass on that day (Catholic Online) He also takes the time to look at the origin of Halloween and the tie to Ireland and the Catholic church.
Brother Green takes us to the origin of Veterans Day and the importance of sharing our gratitude with the many Veterans in our lives. Although we recognize their efforts daily we also give our Veterans the special recognition they earned on this important day.
Please take a moment to read the articles below and share with our brother Hibernians.
In our Motto,
James F. McKay III
