Chicago Archdiocese Monsignor: Ron Santo's funeral was not a Mass but a "prayer service to appeal to all religions"



Monsignor Dan Mayall


Approximately 1,000 people filled Holy Name Cathedral this morning for Cubs legend Ron Santo’s funeral. Among those in attendance were all four Ricketts siblings, Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, Pat Hughes, the Rev. Jessie Jackson, Sr., Ryne Sandberg, Kerry Wood, Glenn Beckert, Fergie Jenkins, Don Kessinger, assorted family members and various Cubs staff.

The service, as explained by Monsignor Dan Mayall, himself a diabetic since his teen years, was not a mass but prayer service to appeal to all religions. Spiritual readings were offered by John J. McDonough from the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and John F. McDonough formerly with the Cubs and now with the Chicago Blackhawks.
