Grace Church Memorial Day Ceremony (Virtual)

Monday, May 25, 2020

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the annual Historic Grace Episcopal Church Memorial Day Ceremony and Commemoration of the End of World War 2 will only be available on the Grace Episcopal Church Yorktown YouTube Channel.

Opening remarks will include the history and meaning of Memorial Day and the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War 2, followed by prayers offered by Grace Church parishioners.  A reading of the names and service of the 102 known veterans buried in the Grace Church Cemetery will be concluded with the playing of "Taps" and ringing of the historic church bell (ca 1725). 

Visit the Grace Episcopal Church Yorktown YouTube Channel to watch the virtual ceremony.
A copy of the Commemorative Program and listing of veterans will be available online at www.gracechurchyorktown.org.

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
