Mass in memory of children Dec. 8

The annual Mass "In Memory of Our Children" will be celebrated on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Father Thomas Santen will celebrate the Mass at 2 p.m. at the Old Cathedral, 209 Walnut St. Downtown on the riverfront.

The Mass is an annual tradition that started in the 1980s and provides families who have lost a child a way to include them in their Christmas observance. Bereaved parents have said the Mass helps them celebrate Christmas with the memory of their child before taking part in holiday activities.

For more information on the Mass, call Rosalyn Hoehn at (636) 391-9374.
