STAMFORD – On Tuesday, November 10, The Catholic Academy of Stamford hosted a Veterans Day Prayer Service to honor our nation’s Veterans. Attending this ceremony were several local Veterans, including those from the Stamford Catholic War Veterans Post and parents and grandparents of students at The Catholic Academy of Stamford.
The prayer service was led by Father John Connaughton and the 8th-grade class. During the prayer service, Father John blessed a new flag for the school. At the conclusion of the service, students raised the newly blessed flag and students placed their Veterans Day rocks (which they created in Art class) around the flagpole.
In all, it was a great tribute to those who gave so much to our nation.
