For the past 27 years, Catholic Life Insurance has hosted a “Flag Day Celebration” event at our Home Office Building in San Antonio, Texas, commemorating the U.S. Flag’s birthday. This event is free to the public and promotes patriotism in the community through the celebration of a great American symbol.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday, June 13, 2019. We will begin with a Mass at 6 p.m. and follow it up with the Flag raising ceremony and an old-fashioned picnic.
The public is invited to attend. For more information, call 210-828-9921.
This year marked the 70th anniversary of the Act of Congress establishing June 14 as National Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the first United States Flag by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The festivities are designed to increase awareness of the Flag and to reinforce the principles of liberty and justice as defined in the Pledge of Allegiance.
