Remembering the fallen

Father Basil DePinto of Corpus Christi Parish in Piedmont incenses the parish’s Book of the Dead during a May 10 prayer service for military and civilian casualties of the Iraq war. Father Leo Edgerly, pastor, looks on.

A parishioner adds the name of a fallen soldier to the Book of the Dead where parishioners list those they wish to remember in prayer. Parishioner Mark D’Ambrosi suggested that the names of all military personnel who have died in Iraq be added. The listing will continue during future liturgies.
