Funeral for slain priest to take place on Monday
The funeral for Father Gilbert Dasna, the Roman Catholic priest who was shot and killed in St. Paul, Alta., will be held on May 19.
The funeral mass will take place at 2 p.m. at the cathedral in St. Paul. The service will be preceded by community prayer vigils in St. Paul on Friday and Saddle Lake on Saturday.
Funeral prayers will be held Sunday at St. Paul Cathedral.
Dasna, who came to Canada from Africa three years ago, will be buried in Nigeria.
Dasna was shot and killed Friday at the rectory in St. Paul, the same day another man, John Carlos Quadros, was killed in a downtown shooting involving RCMP.
RCMP have not linked the two deaths. Autopsies are scheduled to take place on Tuesday.
