Memorial Day Field Mass at St. Boniface Cemetery to be Held on Monday to Honor the Fallen

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 Msgr. Patrick Pollard. All are welcome to attend.

According to Patch, "During the Masses, veterans present will be asked to come forward for a special blessing followed by the playing of Taps."

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.
