Remembrance Ceremony in favour of Private Rafael Rodriguez and the Latin-American Soldiers that participated in the First/Second World War.

About this event

Bill S-218 declares October as the Latin American Heritage Month (LAHM) in Canada and we are proud to showcase the richness and vitality of Latin American cultures and heritage and also to highlight their contributions to Canada.

We want to honour the contributions of Latin Americans who defended our country dating back to the First World War. This was a challenging time for many Latin Americans. Many spoke Spanish as a first language, which wasn’t widely spoken by other military members.

During the First World War and Second World War, many Latin American people enlisted and served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Join us on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at 10:00 AM for a Mass Service in favour of Private Rafael Rodriguez and the Latin American soldiers who participated in the First/Second World War for the freedom of Canada, Latin American and the world at St Monica Catholic Parish at 44 Broadway Ave, Toronto, ON M4P 1T4. Then at 11:45 join us to commemorate a Remembrance Ceremony for the Latin-American Community in Toronto Canada at Mount Hope Catholic Cemetery. Section 18 Range 28 Where Private Rafael Rodriguez Grave is, an exceptional Mexican who fought in the First World War. 305 Erkskine Avenue, Toronto, Ontario. M4P 1Z7.

Due to the cemetery’s infrastructure, it will have very limited attendance of 100 people. And there is also a 500 person limit for the Mass Service.

Proudly supported by Hispanic Heritage Quebec Canada and
