Donnelly Releases Statement on Passing of Bishop John D’Arcy

Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement today in reaction to the passing of Bishop John D’Arcy:

“It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Bishop John D’Arcy.  As members of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, my family and I have long looked to Bishop D’Arcy for spiritual guidance and leadership.  Bishop D’Arcy was a strong voice for not only the Catholic faith, but a voice for the hungry, the poor, and the disadvantaged.  He made all of us better persons.

“Bishop D’Arcy was also my friend, and I greatly valued his kindness, friendship, and advice.  Like all of us in northern Indiana and throughout our state and country, we will miss Bishop John terribly.  I know he is home in God’s peace.”
