Catholics in Los Angeles are preparing to say their final farewells to a beloved auxiliary bishop.

Bishop David O’Connell was murdered in his Hacienda Heights home more than a week ago.

Since his untimely death, memorials for the prelate have been pouring in – from in person vigils outside his home to a new digital memorial created by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

In just a few days, the archdiocese will be holding their final services for the auxiliary bishop.

  • A memorial mass will be held Wednesday, March 1st, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Hacienda Heights. That was the parish Bishop O’Connell has served for the last seven years.
  • On Thursday, March 2nd, a public viewing will take place at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
  • The next day, Friday March 3rd, the funeral will be held at the same location.
