Effingham, IL -(Effingham Radio)- St. Anthony will be hosting a Veterans Day Program on November 9th. The program will begin with an 8:30am Veterans Mass at St. Anthony Church and will be immediately followed by a Program held in Goff Gymnasium at St. Anthony Grade School.
St. Anthony Church will celebrate a Veterans Day Mass with St. Anthony Grade School students in grades K-5. Students and Veterans will both have the unique opportunity to serve during this church service; children greeting veterans and their families, and veterans serving in various mass ministries.
Immediately following the mass, Veterans and their families will be welcomed into Goff Gymnasium at St. Anthony Grade School for an education program conducted by students in grades 3-5. The program is intended to celebrate the sacrifice offered by our Veterans and their loved ones, and as a way to say thank you for protecting our God given freedoms from enemies foreign and domestic.
Anyone interested in showing support and appreciation for our Veterans is encouraged to attend 8:30 mass and then join us in Goff Gym for the program.
If you have any questions, please call St. Anthony Grade School at 217-347-0419.
