Four Chaplains at First Baptist Shelton Feb. 3, 2019

Seymour Veterans to Present Four Chaplains Program in Shelton

First Baptist Church of Shelton, CT
178 Leavenworth Rd, Shelton
SUNDAY Feb. 3, 2019, from 2-3 pm.

On Sunday First Baptist Church of Shelton will host an inspiring program to honor the memory and contributions of four World War II chaplains. Together on Feb. 3, 1943, these four men of God – Methodist, Jewish, Catholic, and Dutch-Reformed – worked selflessly together to share the love of God, sacrificing their own lives to help save troops and civilians aboard the sinking ship SS Dorchester.

“It will be a moving and memorable program, with sound, readings, and music,” says Seymour’s American Legion Post 10 Commander Mike Kearney, who organizes the event each year. “This will be an especially memorable year,” Mike adds, “because 2019 is the 100th anniversary of the American Legion.” Continue reading “Four Chaplains at First Baptist Shelton Feb. 3, 2019”
