Today, we will have the funeral Mass for Bishop John Michael D'Arcy, Bishop Emeritus of our diocese, Fort Wayne-South Bend. Because of Bishop D'Arcy, I was able to answer the call to the diaconate, and I was also able to be called to work as his Director of the Office of Catechesis. In this area, he was one of two mentors and I will miss his presence. I will miss the times we would meet in his office, I will miss his friendship and his teaching. However, I know he will continue to support all of us in his new life with the Lord, May he rest in peace. Here's a link to his NY Times obit.
