Bishop D’Arcy returns home after cancer diagnosis


Bishop John D'Arcy has returned home to the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend after undergoing treatment for lung and brain cancer.

"It's good to be home," the 80-year-old Bishop Emeritus said in a written statement released by the Diocese on Friday.

Bishop D'Arcy, who retired in 2010, was diagnosed with what he called a "rare form of cancer" after not feeling well while visiting family in Massachusetts for Christmas. He started treatments with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston soon after the diagnosis.

In his statement, Bishop D'Arcy thanked current Bishop Kevin Rhodes and the people of the Diocese for their prayers.

"They are an enormous consolation," D'Arcy said. "Please continue them. "

Bishop D'Arcy was treated for prostate cancer in 2011.
