Snow's Shrine Farewell

Building on the earlier post on Tony Snow, it's been announced that the funeral for the former White House spokesman will be held Thursday morning in Washington's Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, on whose steps Snow gave last year's commencement address for the graduating class of the Catholic University of America.

Open to the public and with President Bush expected to attend, DC Archbishop Donald Wuerl will preside at the 10am Mass in the Shrine's Great Upper Church, which'll be celebrated and preached by CUA's President, Vincentian Fr David O'Connell.
