Friends of St. Bridget’s Memorial Day Mass Monday, May 26
SOLON– The Friends of St. Bridget’s Foundation announces that a Memorial Day Mass for Veterans and deceased loved ones will be offered at St. Bridget’s Cemetery on Monday May 26, at 9 a.m. The church and cemetery are located at 2136 St Bridget’s Road NE, Solon (take Highway 1 to Morse Road.) All are welcome. Please bring your lawn chairs. In case of rain, Mass will be held in the church.
St. Bridget’s is located in the Nolan Settlement area of northeast Johnson County. The church was founded in the mid 1800s by Irish immigrants. The church cemetery adjoins the church property, and many of the area immigrants and their families lay at rest there. Today the church is used for weddings and many recordings due to its excellent acoustics.
