Updated at 7:50 a.m with details about Stan Musial's funeral
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has released further details on Stan Musial's funeral, which will take place tomorrow morning at 11 a.m.
The funeral is to be held at the Cathedral Basillica of St. Louis, located at 4431 Lindell Boulevard. Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York and long time friend of the Musial family, will join Archbishop of St. Louis, Robert J. Carlson, in presiding over the Mass.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) has sent a letter to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) asking him to join in the effort to name the under-construction Mississippi River Bridge north of downtown St. Louis after Stan Musial. A section of the letter reads:
Funeral arrangements are set for Cardinals great Stan Musial.
A public visitation will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Basilica in the Central West End from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. The funeral Mass will be Saturday at 11 a.m., also at the Basilica. New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan is expected to help officiate.
Following the Mass, the funeral procession will travel to Busch Stadium where the family will lay a wreath at the base of the Musial statue. Burial will be private.
