This year marks the 150th consecutive observance of the traditional Memorial Day, May 30, in Wilmington. The tradition began in 1868, when a group of New Castle County citizens formed a Memorial Day Committee to honor those who died in the Civil War.

Pacem in Terris has been a part of the Wilmington Memorial Day Parade for over a decade. We have been invited to join the tradition of honoring those who have given their lives for their country. Please join us— as we honor the past, seek to heal the present and bring peace to the future.

The parade lines up 5:15 p.m., steps off at 6:00 p.m., on Delaware Ave. at Woodlawn Ave.. Participants march east down Delaware Avenue to the Civil War Monument at Broom St., where we honor the dead of all wars with a memorial service.
