Bishop Libasci to celebrate special mass for Pope Benedict
The bishop also requests that all daily Masses celebrated across New Hampshire before 2 p.m. Thursday be celebrated for the Pope.
In addition, Bishop Libasci is asking that church bells throughout the Diocese of Manchester be rung in unison as a sign of affection and gratitude for the Holy Father.
In recognition of his eight year Pontificate, bells will ring for eight minutes, ending at 2 p.m.
These bells will join those of other churches throughout the United States and Europe that will ring as Pope Benedict resigns the Chair of Peter at 8 p.m. Rome time.
