Over 200 United States flags will fly over the lawns of Rochester’s Mercy Center as the Sisters of Mercy host their 5th Annual Field of Honor® in tribute to veterans, active duty members and first responders. This posting of flags not only forms a stunning vista of red, white & blue, but it creates a space that may create a sense of healing.

Flags may be sponsored for $35 to honor our heroes, and then the displayed flags will be retained by each flag’s sponsor at the close of the event. Proceeds will benefit the Mercy Bridges a ministry which provides tutors who teach basic literacy skills to adults for whom English is a Second Language.
