ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson says a Mass for Peace and Justice will offer prayers for Ferguson.

The mass is 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Cathedral Basilica. A collection will be taken to assist food pantries and parishes in the Ferguson area, and to help those affected by looting and property destruction.

The St. Louis suburb has been the site of sometimes violent protests since Aug. 9, when 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was unarmed, was shot and killed by a police officer.
