San Francisco’s farewell to Archbishop John R. Quinn

San Francisco’s farewell to Archbishop John R. Quinn

by Karessa McCartney | 11 Jul, 2017
After a solemn, hymn-filled funeral Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral on July 10 attended by three cardinals, 24 bishops and archbishops and hundreds of clergy, religious and faithful, deacons carry the archbishop’s coffin to a waiting vehicle for transportation to Holy Cross Cemetery mausoleum in Colma. Speakers celebrated Archbishop Quinn’s love for Christ, prayer, the priesthood and the church, and shared his gratitude for those who cared for him during his final illness. Archbishop Quinn, who served from 1977-95 as sixth archbishop of San Francisco, died June 22 at age 88. (Photo by Debra Greenblat/Catholic San Francisco)
