The venue will be the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. A vigil service at the Cathedral on June 11 at 5:30 pm will precede the funeral.

The Archdiocese disclosed that Felix will be buried at the Cathedral grounds in his homeland, Dominica, according to his wishes.

Felix, Archbishop Emeritus of Castries, died on Thursday at 91.
