From Deacon's Sermon Today (Trinity Sunday)

Deacon Christopher spoke about four courageous chaplains (Dorchester) during WW II.

The Dorchester Chaplains: Lieutenant George Fox, Lieutenant Alexander D. Goode, Lieutenant Clark V. Poling and Lieutenant John P. Washington

Their story is here and here.

They are remembered on our calendar of Holy Men & Women on February 3.

Holy God, you inspired the Dorchester chaplains to be models of steadfast sacrificial love in a tragic and terrifying time: Help us to follow their example, that their courageous ministry may inspire chaplains and all who serve, to recognize your presence in the midst of peril; through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
