IIn Loving Memory of
+CLARISSE “Eunice” CAPPELLO+
Eunice was a devoted parishioner and Eucharistic Minister at St. Thomas More Church. Eunice called the 4:00 Saturday Vigil “her Mass,” and the people and ministers “her family.” Having moved into Windward Assisted Living Facility, Eunice booked passage on Connections to attend the 4:00 Mass every Saturday—a devotion that cost her many hours of waiting in the heat, rain or
shine. I am deeply moved and inspired by her faith and dedication.
By her dear friend and pastor,

Veteran’s Day 2019
This weekend you may see members of the local VFW or JVFW or American Legion selling Red Paper Poppies to help wounded veterans mend. The Red Poppy comes from a poem that marks Armistice Day: the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month when all went quiet on the Western Front marking the ceasefire of World War I. This is now called Veteran’s Day.
Honoring our Sacred Dead who fell and remain in foreign fields of battle:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die WE SHALL NOT SLEEP, THOUGH POPPIES GROW
IN FLANDERS FIELDS.
~John McCrae 1914
