CHURCHES

Four Chaplains Service: The public is invited to the annual Four Chaplains Service on Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. at the Groveland Congregational Church United Church of Christ, 4 King St., Groveland. This service is hosted by Groveland Post 248, the American Legion. This non-sectarian service commemorates the valiant actions of four Army Chaplains who during World War II gave their lives to save the lives of others. During the early morning hours of Feb. 3, 1943, their Army Troop Transport Dorchester was torpedoed by a German submarine and sunk in the icy North Atlantic with the loss of 672 lives. The Four Chaplains, one Catholic, one Jewish and two Protestants will be memorialized by four corresponding clergy. The Rev. Lance Dallaire will portray Methodist Chaplain Lt. George L. Fox; The Rev. Richard Driscoll will portray Catholic Chaplain Lt. John P. Washington; The Rev. David Forsythe will portray Dutch Reformed Chaplain Lt. Clark V. Poling and Rabbi Mark Golub will portray Jewish Chaplain Lt. Alexander D. Goode. Each Clergyman will give a brief biography of the Chaplain he represents. Boy Scouts from Groveland Troop 87 will also participate. There will be memories, stories and prayers shared by veterans about actual events that historic night. A collation will follow the service.
