Catholics across northern Indiana are remembering the man who led the church for almost a quarter of a century.
Funeral arrangements have been unveiled for Bishop John D’Arcy.
D’Arcy led the Fort Wayne-South Bend Catholic Diocese for 24 years until retiring three years ago.
He died Sunday at the age of 80 from a rare form of cancer.
A prayer was dedicated to Bishop D’Arcy during evening mass Sunday at Saint Matthew’s Church in South Bend.
Doctors diagnosed D’Arcy with cancer in his lungs and brain in December during a trip to Boston to visit his family.
