Wunder’s Cemetery Work Days: come care for the resting place of the saints

Wunder’s Work Days are a great service opportunity for all households, all ages. We invite you to join us as we come together one Saturday morning a month at Wunder’s Cemetery (3963 N. Clark St.) to do general yard work like raking, picking up sticks and trimming trees, and some heftier tasks like moving soil and leveling headstones.

You’ll want to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, a good pair of outdoor shoes, and work gloves if you have them when you join us for a morning of outdoor fun and fellowship.

There’s no need to sign up in advance. Just arrive at the cemetery entrance on the NE corner of Irving Park Rd. and Clark St. around 9 a.m. on any Wunder’s Work Day.

For more information on how to volunteer, email: info@wunders.net or call 773-525-4038.

Learn more about the history of Wunder's Cemetery and First Saint Paul's role as trustee.

WUNDER'S Work Day

Founded in 1859 as First German Lutheran Cemetery, Wunder’s Cemetery was renamed in 1919 after Heinrick Wunder who was pastor at First Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church for more than 50 years. It is now under the loving care of First Saint Paul's as sole trustee.

As such, a group of dedicated members organizes several Wunder’s Work Days each year where volunteers come together for general yard work like raking and trimming trees, and heavier tasks like moving soil and leveling headstones.

There’s no need to sign up in advance. Just arrive at the cemetery entrance on the NE corner of Irving Park and Clark St. around 9 a.m. on a Wunder’s Work Day, and look John (wearing a straw hat in these pictures) or John (wearing a yellow t-shirt).

Be prepared to get dirty, have fun and enjoy sharing the satisfaction of a job well done with fellow volunteers.
