2023 Inventory Closure Reminder and Memorial Day

2023 Inventory Closure Reminder and Memorial Day

May 24, 2023

Dear Friends,


June is quickly approaching, and we wanted to remind everyone that Lumen Mundi & Devon will be closing for our physical inventory counts. We will not be shipping any orders during the week of June 5th through June 9th.


We urge you to place your orders in advance of this week, as shipping will temporarily cease at 5:30pm on Friday, June 2nd. Our goal is to resume shipments as soon as possible, likely on Monday, June 12th. We will keep you informed and send an update on Friday, June 9th so you can plan accordingly.


Please feel free to leave messages for your sales representative or our customer service team during this time, and they will be in touch as soon as they are able to.


Please see below for a special message for Memorial Day.

Memorial Day prompts deep reflection within the Lumen Mundi and Devon family (since Steve is a veteran) and reminds us of the courageous Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice to secure our freedom. These words from Abraham Lincoln resonate strongly: "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."


Over the span of 250 years, countless Americans have offered their lives on the altar of freedom, defending the cherished ideals that define our nation. These brave men and women, driven by love for their country and fellow Americans, have selflessly given everything, making their lives profoundly meaningful to a grateful nation.


Amidst the parades, celebrations, and barbeques, it can be easy to lose sight of the true significance of this holiday. Initially known as Decoration Day, it emerged during the American Civil War, a time when our nation endured its greatest loss of life in any conflict, past or present. Following World War I, it expanded to honor those who had perished in all U.S. wars, eventually becoming known as Memorial Day.


Genuine freedom can be unrefined, even unsettling, demanding great sacrifices. Our collective American history is replete with tales of brave individuals we commemorate on this day. As we revel in the company of family and friends, we implore everyone to pause and pray for those sacrifices, lifting them up to God - honoring them as we uphold the cherished values and beliefs that unite us as Catholics and as Americans.


Yours in Christ,


Gabrielle, Steve and the entire Lumen Mundi/Devon Team
