Flag Retirement Ceremony

Come experience an American tradition…

The Catholic Cemeteries Association will be hosting a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 1pm.

This brief ceremony will include the ceremonial burning of one American flag. Attendants may also bring tattered, worn, or faded American flags to be collected and properly retired at a later date.

The ceremony will take place at:
Calvary Cemetery
