Funeral arrangements for Bishop D'Arcy announced

Funeral arrangements for the Rev. John M. D’Arcy, retired bishop of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, have been announced by diocesan officials.

Three days of events in Fort Wayne and South Bend will culminate at noon Friday with a funeral Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 1122 S. Clinton St.

Events begin Wednesday in South Bend, after D’Arcy’s body is transported to St. Matthew’s Cathedral, 1701 Miami St.

Public visitation in South Bend will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, with a Rosary at 5 p.m.

A Mass of Transferral will be conducted by the diocese’s current bishop, the Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, before the body is transported back to Fort Wayne.

On Thursday, D’Arcy’s body will be formally received at the cathedral. Morning prayer and visitation will begin at 10 a.m. A Rosary at 5 p.m. will be followed by evening prayer at 7 p.m.

Visitation at the cathedral will continue from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Friday.

Diocese officials said D’Arcy’s interment will be conducted privately, with only family members in attendance.

He will be interred in Fort Wayne, in the crypt under the cathedral, where the first four diocesan bishops – Bishops John Henry Luers, Joseph Dwenger, Joseph Rademacher and Henry Joseph Alerding – lie.
