A Mass is planned Sunday to mark the 62nd anniversary of Chicago’s Our Lady of the Angels fire.
Social distancing and masks will be required at the memorial, which is scheduled at 5 p.m. Sunday at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Rd., according to the Chicago Fire Department Foundation.
Members of the fire department and relatives of those affected by the blaze are expected to attend, said Bill Kugelman, president of the Fire Museum of Greater Chicago.
The Dec. 1, 1958, fire at the grade school at Iowa Street and Avers Avenue killed 92 students and three nuns. It resulted in stricter fire safety codes nationwide.
