St Boniface Cemetery To Hold Memorial Day Field Mass
As is its tradition, St. Boniface Cemetery will honor the fallen at a field mass on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th. The mass will begin at 10:30am. This year it will include an honor guard from the Knights of Columbus, and American flags will be distributed to all in attendance. The officiant will be the Very Rev. Peter Snieg, the Rector and President of St. Joseph College Seminary at Loyola University.
St Boniface is located at 4901 N Clark. If you attend, you may want to check out the Civil War Memorial that honors German immigrants "who took part in the defense of the new fatherland." St. Boniface opened in 1863 and was Chicago's first German Catholic cemetery.
