MOUNT ADAMS (FOX19) -- As it has for more than 40 years, Holy Cross-Immaculata Church in Mount Adams will hold the Greater Cincinnati Area Armed Forces Sabbath Ceremony at the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday.
The Armed Forces Sabbath is an opportunity to honor all military members, active duty, reserve, or retired, and thank them for their service. Attendees approaching the church will see the flags of most of the participating organizations flying along Guido Street. The service begins with an entrance procession of uniformed military members accompanied by a bagpiper and drummer.
All veterans and their families and friends are urged to attend and gather at 10:30 a.m. in front of the church to process in as a group. The wearing of the dress uniform by service members is encouraged but not required. This event is co-sponsored by the Greater Cincinnati Navy League of the United States, the Reserve Officers Association and the Reserve Officers Association League.
