A weeklong celebration of Pastor's life will culminate with a funeral Mass on Friday afternoon and burial immediately after.

Pastor, a liberal Democrat known for his bipartisanship, died after suffering a heart attack last week. He was 75.

Pastor served 23 years in Congress but decided to not seek re-election in 2014. One of his daughters, Laura Pastor, serves on the Phoenix City Council.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, called Pastor "an Arizona trailblazer and true public servant" and ordered that flags lowered statewide to half-staff.
