Event Details

St. Patrick School has selected the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA (AMS) as the charity to benefit through theproceeds of the Bay Shore 3rd Annual Field of Honor® display of the United States Flag. This inspiring formation of the Stars and Stripes in front of St. Patrick School take on additional meaning as the U.S. flag is the perfect emblem symbolizing not only those honored by the formation of flags forming the Field of Honor display but all those served by AMS.

This unique Archdiocese has no territorial boundaries limiting its outreach in providing the Catholic Church’s full range of pastoral ministries and spiritual services to those serving in the United States Armed Forces. This spiritual support stretches to serve those stationed in more that 220 installations located in 29 countries and patients in 153 Veterans Administration Medical Centers. Adding to this mission, the Archdiocese has responsibility for federal employees serving outside the United States in 134 countries. In all more than 1.8 million men women and children are blessed by the Archdiocese.

This meaningful event is the perfect opportunity for the Bay Shore community to gather while remembering and honoring our heroes. It is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. There is a story of service and sacrifice surrounding each posted flag to remind the mature and to teach the youth that our freedoms have been purchase by the toil and blood of others. Family, friends and each of us share in the loss of men and women whose lives have been cut short on battlefields of an increasingly dangerous world.

The panorama of red, white and blue is hard to adequately describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten. There will be no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to view the ordered rows of flags. This is an event not to be missed.
The Bay Shore display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.
