On Friday, November 21, a funeral Mass was said for Sister Benedicta Idefelt CSC at Saint Mary's Church in Helsinki. In the afternoon Sister Benedicta, known outside Catholic circles in Finland for her autobiography Viipurista Vatikaaniin, which details her journey from then-Finnish Vyborg to working in the Vatican, was buried in the Catholic cemetary in Turku.
