Final resting place revealed for Chattanooga priest on the road to sainthood
Channel 3 is learning more about the final resting place for a Chattanooga priest who is on the road to sainthood.
The body of Father Patrick Ryan will be moved to The Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.
The basilica just had major renovations done.
An area has already been cleared near the front of the church for Father Ryan's body.
The church plans to have a sarcophagus built, which will be his final resting place.
"People that would want to pay their devotions to a loved one, they go to the cemetery,” Father David Carter said. “This would be the same thing for someone who gave his life for the people of Chattanooga so many years ago. It allows us to remember him in a special way."
