​How Our Diocese Will Mark the Death of​ Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Bishop W. Shawn McKnight has issued plans for how our diocese will mark the death of a pope in accordance with the traditions and customs of our Church.

The funeral and burial of Pope Benedict will take place on January 5 in Rome. After the funeral, the Novemdiales — nine official days of mourning — are observed in Rome and throughout the Church. 

Our diocese will participate in this time of mourning in a number of ways, including inviting Catholics to attend special memorial Masses which will be held in each of our Deaneries.

The Southwest Deanery Mass in remembrance of Holy Father Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI will be held Saturday, January 14 at 10 a.m. at Sacred Heart Chapel of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, 421 W. Third St., Sedalia.
