Members of the Middle Georgia faith community joined them to fill the church as everyone, in prayerful continuity, gave thanks for the service and leadership of Pope Benedict XVI and offered prayers for him as he continues to serve the Church through prayer and study.

Primary celebrant for the service was Saint Joseph Pastor Fr. Allan McDonald, con-celebrated with Parochial Vicar Fr. Dawid Kwiatkowski, and assisted by Deacons Rev. Don Coates and Tom Eden.
