Fr. William Corby Division, Fairfax Station, Virginia to sponsor Memorial Day Mass

The Annual Memorial Day Mass sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) will be celebrated on Monday, May 28th, at 9:15 am, at the Historic Church. Weather permitting, the Mass will be held outdoors, so please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.  Prior to the Mass, U.S. and Irish flags are placed on each gravesite; meet outside the Old Hall at 7:00 am; (the grass is usually very wet, so old shoes may be advised.) This Mass is in remembrance of all deceased veterans and loved ones, especially those buried in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Immediately following Mass, an  Honor Guard and Piper will lead our priests and congregation on a procession through the Cemetery for the blessing of the graves. 

Following the blessing of graves, the Ancient Order of Hibernians will host a reception in Old St. Mary’s Hall  which will include the presentation of the John F. Devaney Scholarship Award.
