Memorial Day is a day for the country to come together to honor those who lost their lives serving our country. Saint Aidan Catholic School has a long-standing tradition of honoring veterans and remembering those who served.
This year, students from Saint Aidan School invited veterans from the Williston Park area, as well as veterans from our school families to come together for a beautiful ceremony in Saint Aidan Church.
The first grade students presented the veterans with cards thanking them for their service. The students in Kindergarten through grade 8, joined together with all of their special guests in prayer, song, and–of course–a little bit of education. Students shared the historical significance of Memorial Day, the meaning of patriotism, but most importantly, what it means to serve one another as Catholics. Not everyone will be called to join the armed forces, but all Christians should live their life for others, to love as Christ loved.
The ceremony was organized by Mrs. Jamie Michel, the 7th and 8th grade social studies teacher, Ms. Reagan Stone, the music teacher, and students from various grades.
May God bless all of our servicemen and women and May God Bless America!
