Time: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

The service celebrates the enduring bond established between the United States, the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations who fought and bled together. The service will provide an opportunity for the wider community to honor the service of surviving veterans and to connect younger generations with their stories. Jim Cunningham will read the famous “let us now praise famous men” text from Ecclesiasticus.
Partnering with local schools and churches, the Pittsburgh Compline Choir will work to pair local youth with each and every veteran or surviving spouse attending the service, so that young people can hear about these heroes firsthand and establish a personal connection.
