"We will have music and song, a reading in Scripture, reflections from pastors and the Lord's Prayer," said Dominick Azzara, pastoral assistant at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
said the service will be solemn but not sorrowful.Rather than mourning the loss of the pope, the service will celebrate his
resonant legacy on the Christian faith.
"As Christians, all of us celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the possibility of eternal life," Azzara
said.The service "will be an opportunity to listen to what each of these men has to say about Christian unity, the impact Pope John Paul II had on the Catholic Church and how it worked its way down to Clarksville."
Because it is scheduled for a Saturday afternoon, Azzara
says casual attire for the service will be acceptable.
