Memorial Day Mass
Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET
Every year, Christ the Divine Mercy Parish in Millinocket provides a Memorial Day Mass at the Memorial Altar in the Millinocket Cemetery to honor those military veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect America’s freedom and way of life. Members of Millinocket Council 680 participated in this Mass, as they do every year, by attending the Mass to honor their fallen comrades, as members of the 4th Degree Honor Guard, or by visiting the gravesites of veterans before and after the Mass. Council 680 plays an active role in this memorial Mass because we recognize that many of our members, active and deceased, are veterans, the Memorial Altar where this Mass is usually held was built by members of Council 680 in 1936, and the 4th principle of our Order is patriotism.
