Retiring Old Glory Next July 4th

Old Glory
When the United States flag (Old Glory) becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag, and the flag should be "retired" with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's flag.

If someone has an old or unusable American Flag that is no longer fit for display you can BRING it to the rectory.

The St. Mary Magdalen Veterans Committee & the First catholic Slovak ladies Association will collect the worn, tattered flags and otherwise unserviceable flags & respectfully destroy them during the 2017 Ceremony next July 4th. The flags will be placed on a ceremonial pyre and set ablaze.

If you have any questions, or would like to assist, please feel free to contact Joe Miklovic at 353-1062.

Rev. Msgr. John J. Borcic, Pastor
Rev. John V. Kerber, Retired
Deacon Joseph J. Iovanna
Deacon J. Gerard Quinn, J.C.L.
