Staff Report

Various schools across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati celebrated Veteran’s Day Nov. 10.

At Guardian Angels in Mount Washington, students put on performances and wrote letters for veterans, who were invited to attend the annual event. More than 225 people attended including dozens of veterans, some of whom were graduates of the school

At St. Susanna in Mason, more than 40 veterans attended Mass and a reception in their honor. Songs and speeches were performed and a proclamation from the President of the United States was read. The veterans were also given thank you cards.

In a story submission to The Catholic Telegraph, St. Susanna principle Kevan Hartman wrote, “What was really amazing were the history lessons that many students learned from our special guests. Lessons, in the form of stories, that didn’t require an iPad or a curriculum guide. As our lives move swiftly into the future, Wednesday was a day to be in and relish the past and know that these special “heroes” have made our future a possibility.”
