A private service will be held at Greater Grace Church in Ferguson, MO on Saturday, September 12th at 11:00 AM. Media and fans can access a live stream of the service at cardinals.com.
Prior to the private service, the Brock family will lay a wreath at the Lou Brock Statue at Lindenwood University at 9:30 AM. There will be a funeral procession from Lindenwood University to Greater Grace Church via First Capitol Drive to Fifth Street in St. Charles. After the private service, the family will lead a procession to Busch Stadium where they will lay a wreath at the Lou Brock statue located at the corner of 8th and Clark Street at approximately 1:30 PM. The procession to Busch Stadium will proceed from Highway 70, north on Tucker Avenue to Market Street to the corner of 8th and Clark Street.
Reporters wishing to cover the service will have access to a live feed of the service at cardinals.com, but will not have access inside the church. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch will provide pool photography coverage. Out of respect, there will be no access to the family and friends of Lou.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Lou Brock Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, located at 231 Fox Hill Road, St. Charles, MO 63301. The team has set up a web page at cardinals.com/lou to honor Lou and allow fans to share their personal tributes and condolences to Lou’s family.
