Multi-Faith Memorial Day Service Set

By Andy Freudenburg

The 26th Interfaith Paths to Peace Memorial Day service is set for 11am today in downtown Lousiville.

Spokesperson Terry Taylor says the service at Christ Church Cathedral will honor both military personnel and civilians who died in U.S. wars.

“This year for the first time we have as special emphasis on youth presenters, which is kind of exciting. We have music, dance, reading, prayers, reflections, and from people as young as 10 years old out of the Baha’i community a fifth grader from Bates Elementary School will be taking part, young adults. It should be a really powerful experience,” he said.

The service is open to the public.  It will be followed by a reception.
