Funeral services scheduled for Bishop D'Arcy

Posted:

The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend has announced the schedule for services following the death of Bishop John D'Arcy over the weekend.

Bishop D'Arcy had been battling lung and brain cancer. He 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. He returned home in late January.  Bishop D'Arcy had also been treated for prostate cancer in 2011.

Bishop D'Arcy retired in 2010. The Diocese says his death came on the 56th anniversary of his first mass as an ordained priest.

Governor Mike Pence issued a statement regarding Bishop D'Arcy's passing on Monday.  "I send my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of a great Hoosier church leader, Bishop Emeritus John D'Arcy. His commitment and dedication to the Catholic church and Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend spanned more than two decades and his courageous leadership will be greatly missed," said the governor.
