Memorial Day Field Mass At St. Boniface Cemetery On Monday Morning

As is its annual tradition, St. Boniface Cemetery will honor the fallen at a field mass on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th.

The service will begin at 10:30am. Active military and veterans will also be asked to come forward for a special blessing followed by the playing of Taps. The officiant will be the Most Rev. Raymond E. Goedert, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Chicago.

Although it is a Catholic Mass, all are invited to attend.

St Boniface is located at 4901 N Clark. If you attend, you may want to check out the Civil War Memorial (pictured right) 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.
