We are blessed to live in a country with the freedoms afforded to us by our constitution. Too many times we take these freedoms for granted. But we should never forget the sacrifice others endure in order for us to live free. Our parish is honored to have been selected to display a Memorial of all Florida soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Most Precious Blood Catholic Church is honored to display this Memorial of our Florida soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Jim Vanderbleek created the tribute to honor our Florida soldiers who died while serving Iraq and Afghanistan.  Now this powerful memorial travels throughout the state of Florida.

We will display a tribute of crosses on the parish grounds beginning on Saturday, May 20th and then honor our fallen soldiers with a Memorial Day ceremony Monday, May 28th.

Observation Times:  May 20th – May 28th  9AM to 8PM
You are invited to walk amidst the crosses as our community pays their respects and honors our Florida Fallen Soldiers.

Tribute to our Fallen Soldiers Monday, May 28th 11AM
Join us on Memorial Day to remember our fallen brothers and sisters who gave their lives for us.  The service will be on Monday, May 28th from 11:00am – 12:00pm, with a special tribute to the Vietnam Veterans in recognition of their sacrifice  50 years ago. All in our community are welcomed to attend.
