Public invited to Memorial Day Mass to honor priests and religious sisters

Bishop Stephen Berg will be the main celebrant at an outdoor Memorial Day Mass to pray for the priests and religious sisters of the Diocese of Pueblo buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo. The Mass will be celebrated on Monday, May 30 at 9:30 a.m. at the bishop’s mausoleum near the entrance of Roselawn. In case of inclement weather, Mass will be held at nearby St. Joseph Parish.

Music will be provided by the music ministry from St. Joseph Parish. The graves of the priests and sisters will be cleaned and decorated by members of the Knights of Columbus councils in Pueblo and the Serra Club of Pueblo. A Knights of Columbus Honor Guard is expected to also be present.
