The Ceremonial of Bishops, upon the death of a bishop, encourages all parish communities to offer prayers for the deceased bishop by celebrating Mass, praying the Office of the Dead, or in some other way. On Thursday, Owensboro Catholic High School will remember and pray for Bishop John J. McRaith by celebrating mass at 10:35 in the large gym. Fr. Ed Bradley, Campus Chaplain, will celebrate the mass, and all OCHS family and friends are invited.
Immediately following mass, the students, faculty and staff along with any others who wish to join us will assemble on Parrish Ave. to serve as an honor guard as the body of Bishop McRaith passes by on its way to the Cathedral.
