Please dress for the weather. There is no seating, so feel free to bring a lawn chair. Also, please be advised that the grounds can often be a little muddy. Parking is available in two small lots north of the driveway on Green Road.

Potter's Field is Cleveland's burial ground for the indigent and homeless, where they are laid to rest in unmarked graves. The pallbearers hold a prayer service at this site twice each year, once around All Saints Day and once during Holy Week.

Coincidentally, Mr. Jim Skerl '74, founder of the pallbearer ministry, died on October 23, 2014. We will remember his impact on so many students, and so many people on the margins, on this day.
