Evening Roundup - 8th Sunday after Pentecost (EF) Or Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (OF) - July 19th, 2015

The original Hermione brought French General Marquis de Lafayette to America in 1780 to inform General Washington that a French army was headed for the United States to assist in the war effort. The symbolic return of the Hermione will pay homage to Lafayette and the Franco-American alliance that brought victory at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. The Hermione will visit Yorktown, Va June 5 and then continue up the east coast visiting cities of Franco-American historical significance.
