Map: Menino's 'Final Ride Home'

This article is more than 5 years old.

Boston residents will pay final respects and honor the legacy of the longtime Mayor Thomas Menino this weekend.

On Sunday, Nov. 2, Mayor Menino will lie in repose at Faneuil Hall, beginning at 10 a.m. in an event that is open to the public.

On Monday, Nov. 3 at 10:45 a.m., a procession from Faneuil Hall to Most Precious Blood Parish will be his "Final Ride Home." Members of the public are encouraged to line the procession route.

Beginning at Faneuil Hall and Boston City Hall, where Mayor Menino worked for more than 30 years, the procession will pass several places of significance. It will visit Parkman House, the official mayor residence; Boston University in Kenmore Square, where Mayor Menino served as co-director of Initiative on Cities; and Fenway Park.

Heading south, the procession will pass through Dudley Square, Grove Hall, Franklin Park, Bowdoin Geneva, Mattapan Library and Roslindale Square, all areas where Menino implemented initiatives or had some of his favorite programs. The procession will end at Most Precious Blood Parish, where Mayor Menino was baptized.

See the procession route here or in the map below.

Following the procession, a private funeral Mass will be held at the Parish in Hyde Park.

Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated the beginning time of the funeral procession. It begins at 10:45 a.m.
