All-Schools Mass is Wednesday

Statement issued Friday:

Area Catholic elementary school students, teachers, staff and parents will gather in the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday, October 26, at 10:30 a.m. for the annual Catholic All-Schools Mass.

More than 6,000 students are expected to attend the liturgy.

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, will preside at the Mass with about 30 to 40 local and area priests serving as concelebrants.

Students also will participate in the Mass as servers, gift presenters, incense bearers and in other liturgical functions including prayer, petitions and singing. Many fourth-grade students will dress as their favorite saint since it will be near All Saints Day, November 1.
