Every Memorial Day the Knights of Columbus assist in the special Parish Mass to pray for those deceased from our parish and especially those buried in St. Mary's Cemetery. This Mass is held at the base of the Crucifixion Monument which was donated by the Knights of Columbus back in the 1950's to honor those from Mansfield who lost their lives during World War II. The Knights also spend time the week prior to the Mass sprucing up the cemetery in preparation for this special Mass.
