Welcome to Police Chaplains Ministry

  Serving active and retired men and women of the Chicago  Police Department and their families
 Socius corpus custodit... Animam custodimus
Your partner has your back, but we've got your soul.


All active and retired CPD members, Gold Star Families, Chaplains Ministry supporters, and their families are welcome...as is the public. Mass will be finished by 10:30 for the sake of on-duty worshipers on their lunch break.

While this is a Catholic Mass, ALL are welcome to honor dads/grandfathers/father figures whose names are permanently inscribed on the walls of the CPD memorial.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket...and a picnic lunch if you'd like to stick around.

IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, call Fr. Dan Brandt, directing CPD Chaplain, at 773-550-2369 for status.

Ample free parking is available on Museum Campus Drive. Uniformed CPD officers will direct you.

The CFD 5-11 canteen will be on hand providing water, Gatorade, coffee and snacks. And the mounted unit horses will be looking forward to seeing you as well.

God bless all our fathers and father figures, living and deceased!

"The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

― Theodore Roosevelt
1858 - 1919
