The 7 p.m. Mass in Spanish at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas will honor fallen DPD officer Rogelio Santander. A photo of Officer Santander will be placed on the altar surrounded by candles to represent the light the fallen officer brought to the community through his service.
