Bishop Kicanas to hold Mass for shooting victims Tuesday

The victims of Saturday's shooting rampage, which killed six and wounded 14 others, will be remembered at a Mass at St. Odilia Parish on Tuesday night.

Rev. Gerald F. Kicanas, Tucson's Catholic bishop, will hold a "Mass for the Healing of Our Community, Remembrance of Those Who Have Died, and for the Consolation of All Victims and Their Families" at the church, 7570 N. Paseo del Norte, beginning at 7 p.m.

The family of Christina Taylor Green, the nine-year-old girl killed in the attack, attends St. Odilia Parish. She made her First Communion there last spring.

St. Odeilia is just blocks from the site of Saturday's mass shooting. Authorities say Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head, was the target of the attack.

Also killed was U.S. District Judge John Roll, who attended the nearby St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, where he served as a lector.
