---- — The funeral for Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer of Andover has been set for Monday morning at 10 at St. Augustine Church, 43 Essex St., Andover.

Her wake and calling hours will be held Sunday from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m., also at St. Augustine Church.

St. Augustine has canceled its 5:30 p.m. Mass Sunday to accommodate the wake and is directing parishioners to a 6 p.m. Mass at St. Michael Church in North Andover.

“Everyone’s understanding, compassionate and prayerful support of the Ritzer family is most appreciated,” read an email that St. Augustine sent to parishioners this morning.
