The Notre Dame community will commemorate the life of Bishop Emeritus John D’Arcy of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend at a Mass today in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, University Spokesman Dennis Brown announced in an email Tuesday. University President Fr. John Jenkins will preside over the 5:15 p.m. service. Theology professor John Cavadini, director of the Institute for Church Life, will deliver a eulogy for D’Arcy. D’Arcy, who passed away Sunday, visited Notre Dame often during his tenure as bishop to celebrate Mass, ordain Holy Cross priests and deacons and administer the Sacrament of Confirmation for members of the University community. He received the Rev. Howard J. Kenna, CSC, award in 2003 for his service to Notre Dame and the Congregation of Holy Cross.
