The re-dedicated marble plaques were previously installed in the church of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, on West 23rd St, which was decommissioned a few years ago by the NY Archdiocese.
Following the decommissioning, the Archdiocese agreed to let the Fédération of French War Veterans of New York and the American Society of Le Souvenir Français, Inc. install the removed plaques in the church of Notre-Dame, which has been designated as the NYC French-speaking parish by the Archdiocese after the decommissioning of the church of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul.
These 6 marble plaques display the names of French and American volunteers who died for France during the two world wars. One plaque displays the names of members of the American Field Volunteers , another one displays the names of members of the Lafayette Squadron.
The dedication ceremony will include speeches and will be followed by the French and the American national anthems.
