Visitation will be Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., followed by a funeral Mass at noon at the church in the South Side neighborhood of Beverly.
Greeley was an outspoken Roman Catholic priest, best-selling author and longtime Chicago newspaper columnist who even criticized the hierarchy of his own church over the child sex abuse scandal.
Greeley wrote more than 50 best-selling novels, many of them international mystery thrillers, and dozens of nonfiction works.
He died Wednesday at the age of 85.
