Community Outreach


Memorial Day Mass: “Home of the Free because of the Brave”

Our Annual Memorial Day Mass is held, weather permitting, in the St. Dominic/ Armed Forces section of New Calvary Cemetery in South Portland on Memorial Day at 9 AM.  During this special Mass, we honor the Veterans and military members of the Greater Portland community and pay tribute to their courage and sacrifices. This family-friendly event is designed to show dedication and appreciation to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country. 



Memorial Day Essay Contest: “The true meaning of Memorial Day”

In our first year of holding this essay contest, it’s open to all Cheverus High School students. The purpose of this contest is to inspire young people in our community to learn more about the true meaning of this special day. Cash prizes are awarded to three winners of the contest and will be recognized at our Annual Memorial Day Mass.



First Responders’ Annual Appreciation Cookout: “Honor, Courage, Sacrifice"

We can never truly repay the men and women who so selflessly give themselves day after day to protect our communities. We began this cookout to show our deep appreciation to the First Responders in the Great Portland community and to get the know those who keep our communities safe.



Annual Candlelight Service of Remembrance: “Our Loved Ones are Always with Us”

Holidays force us to realize how much our lives have been changed by the loss of our loved one. We began this service in 2000 because, particularly in the first year, many bereaved are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions. The first step in coping with grief at the holidays is to make specific plans to obtain the support that you need. We at Conroy-Tully Walker Funeral Homes are here to support you. The Candlelight Service is a beautiful and moving event designed to bring the community together to remember those we’ve lost. The lighting of candles in remembrance of loved ones is an impactful, visual ceremony. Our desire is to provide comfort, hope, and healing to all who attend.
