Mass for Peace planned for those affected in Ferguson
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson said a Mass for Peace and Justice will offer prayers for Ferguson.
The mass is scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Cathedral Basilica. A collection will be taken to assist food pantries and parishes in the Ferguson area, and to help those affected by looting and property destruction.
The St. Louis suburb has been the site of sometimes violent protests since Aug. 9, when unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.
