A two-decade-long journey by a Loretto couple and the Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown with the goal of having the Rev. Demetrius Gallitzin canonized is coming to an end.
All that is left to do, according to Frank and Betty Seymour, is to wait and pray.
The Seymours are diocesan postulators of the cause, the lay individuals who have worked for years assembling the materials needed to have Gallitzin elevated from his current level of Servant of God to sainthood.
A Mass will be held Wednesday at the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel in Loretto, which will serve as the closing session of the diocese's effort to convince church leaders in Rome that Gallitzin was more than the man who brought Catholicism to the region.
Part of the Mass will include the wax sealing of the box holding documents gathered by the Seymours and others.
