1916 Easter Uprising - Flag Raising





On

Sunday, April 27th at 9:00 am, the Greater New Haven St. Patrick's Day

Parade invites you to attend a Mass for Peace and a Flag Raising

ceremony to

commemorate the 98th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Uprising.



Following the Mass there will be a ceremony to honor the patriots of

1916 and the Hunger Strikers of 1981. This annual public ceremony serves

as a reminder to all ethnic groups that freedom and liberty carry a

high price. Local honorees are remembered in a roll call and the

original "Proclamation of Freedom" will be read.




Police and Fire Emerald Societies, as well as state

and local political officials, are encouraged to attend.  Please call for

arrangements.


For information about the mass/ceremony, please contact event Chair

Joe Lynch at 203-483-4574 or lynch68@sbcglobal.net, or Margaret

Prendergast at mspren@snet.net.
