Annual Memorial Day Field Mass at Gate of Heaven Cemetery
Monday, May 30th, 2022 with Celebrant Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr Memorial Day Military Presentation at 10:30AM Memorial Day Mass at 11:00AM
Our Gate of Heaven Cemetery is continuing the tradition on this Memorial Day with Archbishop Schnurr at the base of the Bishops and Priests mound for our annual Memorial Day Mass. Let us gather together with respect and with prayer at 10:30AM for our Military Presentation to honor all who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.
We also will gather in prayer on these sacred grounds for our Memorial Mass to pray for the souls of those at rest here, their families, and for all who have gone before us.
A shuttle from parking to the priest mound will be provided.
There is a sign up before mass for taps to be played at your military loved one’s gravesite after the mass.
Please bring your folding chairs.
Refreshments will be provided after mass.
*If storms occur, the mass will be moved inside Good Shepherd Parish (1 ½ miles away) at 8815 East Kemper Road*
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
“Give all your worries to Him, because He cares for you. “
1 Peter 5:7
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
