The funeral mass will be held Saturday at 11 am at the Cathedral. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, a long time friend of the family will join 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 proceed to Busch Stadium where the family will lay a wreath at the Musial statue. The family will then move on to a private burial.
Missouri leaders are reacting to the news of the passing of Musial. The baseball legend died Saturday at his home in suburban St. Louis at the age of 92.
The Man as he was known held the National League record for hits for decades, and is considered the greatest St. Louis Cardinal of all time.
Governor Jay Nixon in a statement from his office calls Musial a hero "who, with the utmost of humility, inspired us all to aim high and dream big."
Senator Claire McCaskill in a statement from her office calls Musial "a national treasure that St. Louis was happy to share."
