Memorial Day has always been honored in Garden City by prayerful commemoration alongside celebrations of freedom and service in community. The traditional parade and Memorial Day Fair on the Cathedral grounds have been a part of the Garden City experience for generations. Although the parade and fair cannot happen this year, the Cathedral will host its traditional Interfaith Memorial Day service online at 8:45am on Monday, May 25. This will be an opportunity for the whole Garden City community to give thanks to God for the gifts of life we enjoy while remembering the high price at which they have come.
The service will include patriotic hymns recorded on the Cathedral organ, prayers, scripture and thanksgiving for the brave sacrifices made on behalf of a grateful nation. Boy Scouts Cathedral Troop 55 will participate along with clergy from different faiths across Garden City.
