ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The family of Stan Musial has officially announced funeral and public visitation arrangements for the Cardinals Hall of Famer.

A public visitation is planned for Thursday, January 24th from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis in St. Louis.

The funeral mass will be held at the Cathedral on Saturday, January 26th at 11 a.m. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York and long-time friend of the Musial family, will join the Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, and Bishop Richard Stika in celebrating the Mass.

Immediately following the mass, a funeral procession will make its way to Busch Stadium where the family will lay a wreath at the base of the statute of Stan Musial as part of a prayer ceremony before proceeding to a private burial. More information on the funeral procession will be announced in the coming days.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Covenant House or charity of the fan’s choice in the name of Stan Musial. The Cardinals have set up a memorial site around the Musial Statute at Gate 3 at Busch Stadium, which will remain in place until a date yet determined. The team has also set up a web page (cardinals.com/stan) to pay tribute to Stan and allow fans to offer condolences to the family.
