This Sunday, November 11 at 11:00am, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 199 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens is commemorating the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day with a special service.
“Please plan to join us for this special service, a requiem mass in honor of all those who died in wartime. The original Remembrance Day (sometimes still called Armistice Day) was instituted at the end of World War I, at 11:00 am, on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Remembrance Sunday this year is particularly significant and poignant because it is exactly the centennial, down to the 11:00 am starting time. We will begin our service as they did 100 years ago with two minutes of silence. Please plan to join us and invite your friends and neighbors to the special celebration.”
