Memorial Day Sunday
Memorial Day Sunday is being observed today. Because it is a day of national significance, the color on the altar will be red. Participants are encouraged to wear red as well. Memorial Day will be observed nationally on Monday as a time to remember those who sacrificed so much in defense of their country. It is also a time to remember other loved ones who passed from this life.
