Service honors four chaplains' sacrifice at sea

Monroe T. Smith and retired Army Col. Nick Morana. St. Theresa's choir will sing patriotic songs. At the close of the service, four white doves will be released from the church parking lot, and refreshments will be served. The service honors the four military chaplains, all of different faiths, who died aboard the USS Dorchester, which was torpedoed during World War II on Feb. 3, 1943.
