Sister Buffy is the president of Loretto Academy - she is to the right in the image.

St. Patrick's Cathedral will host a rosary tonight at 6 p.m. in remembrance of the Rev. Richard "Rick" Matty, who died Monday of natural causes while in Chicago visiting friends, officials with the Catholic Diocese of El Paso said.

He was 57 years old.

He was assigned to the Diocese of El Paso in 1986 and was the first director for the Diocesan Migrant and Refugee Services.

He has also served as a priest at St. Frances Xavier Cabrini; as the Chancellor of the El Paso Diocese; and was elected as the Diocesan Administrator during Bishop Raymundo Pena's absence.

On July 1, 1997, the Rev. Matty was appointed as the rector of St. Patrick Cathedral, where he has served since.

A funeral mass will be held on Friday at St. Christopher Church in Rocky River, Ohio.

A memorial Mass will also be hosted at St. Patrick Cathedral, but a date and time is yet to be determined.
