The entourage included: St. Thomas Council Grand Knight Terry Sylvanus, his wife Doris; Deputy Grand Knight Rick Southwick, his wife Rebecca; Past District Deputy Ray Sargent and his wife Claire; Greg Semo, his wife Tina, their daughters Taylor and Ciley; John Chandonnet; and Charles LaChapelle. Four veterans attended the Sunday service. Among the four veterans was a Pearl Harbor survivor. Chaplain (Fr.) Jacob George was the celebrant at the mass. Father George is a Clinical Staff Chaplain at the hospital. The entourage, along with two of the veterans, gathered for coffee and doughnuts following the service.
