The Montreal Canadiens promise the funeral services of Jean Béliveau will be "humble and accessible," just like Béliveau himself.

The funeral is set for Dec. 10 at Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral.

The public is invited to pay tribute to Béliveau by visiting a bronze statue of him in front of the main entrance of the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Béliveau's body will rest at the Bell Centre Chapel on Sunday and Monday.

The public is invited to pay tribute to him between 10a.m. and 6p.m.

In order to join the recessional line, you must enter through the main entrance of the amphitheatre.

More funeral details will be announced in the coming days.
