Memorial Day Field Mass To Be Held At St. Boniface on Monday Morning; All Are Welcome


As is its annual tradition, St. Boniface Cemetery will honor the fallen at a field mass on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th.

The service will begin at 10:30am. A special blessing will be said for active military members and veterans followed by the playing of Taps. 

The officiant will be the Rev. Michael P. Ahlstrom. A program of the service can be seen here.

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.
