A memorial service for the nineteen Arizona firefighters who died last week.
The 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters were honored Tuesday, July 2, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Prescott, Arizona. The Paul Crowell Memorial Chapel was nearly filled to capacity with 54 people attending the moving service. Led by the Rev. Mark Moline, rector, the Rev. Richard Lassiter, assisting priest, and the Rev. Kimball Arnold, deacon, the names of all the fallen were read aloud, followed by the ringing of the church bell, one peal for each of the deceased. The Great Litany, a Gospel Reading, and Holy Eucharist comprised the remainder of the service.
