St Boniface to Hold Traditional Field Mass To Honor The Fallen on Memorial Day

St. Boniface Cemetery will hold its annual Field Mass on Monday, Memorial Day, to honor those who gave their lives in service of this country. It will take place at 10:30am and will be led by the Very Rev. Peter Snieg, Rector and President of St. Joseph College Seminary at Loyola University. All are welcome to attend.

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.
