Sunday morning at about 11:30, our beloved Bishop Emeritus John M. D'Arcy died after a mercifully brief bought with cancer.
He will be greatly missed, he was certainly one of a kind!
I owe a great deal to Bishop D'Arcy. He accepted me to the seminary in 2001 and ordained me a priest in 2009. In the 8 years in between we had frequent meetings and opportunities for me to learn from him. He was truly a father-figure to his seminarians and priests and I am who I am today because of his guidance.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
