ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A mass in remembrance of journalist James Foley has been scheduled for Sunday in Rochester, New Hampshire.

The Foley family said a Holy Mass of “Healing, Hope and for Peace” is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary on 189 North Main St.

A memorial Mass will be held at the church for Foley on Oct. 18, on what would have been his 41st birthday.

Foley was abducted in 2012 and held for nearly two years.

Islamic militants posted a video showing his murder on Tuesday and said they killed him because the U.S. had launched airstrikes in northern Iraq.
