This Veterans’ Day, the Archdiocese Office of Family Life planned a special Mass to honor the veterans in our community who serve our country and defend our freedom. 

Bishop Joseph Brennan celebrated the 10 a.m. Mass on Sunday, Nov. 11, offering prayers and thanks for everything that LA veterans and their families have sacrificed. Veterans came in uniform, and were recognized with a special ribbon, commemorative certificate, and a special blessing from the bishop.
