CINCINNATI (AP) — A funeral Mass will be held Friday for a former Cincinnati archbishop who led Catholics there for more than a quarter century. Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk had been in declining health for years before he died Sunday at the age of 85. His funeral Mass will be held at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in Cincinnati. An archdiocese spokeswoman says the Mass will be private, meaning the public won't be allowed to attend due to restrictions now in place due to the coronavirus. But it will be livestreamed on the archdiocese's website. A memorial Mass open to the public will be held at a later date.
