For the first time in 25 years, the bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend will not attend the University of Notre Dame's graduation ceremony.
"I have always revered the office of the presidency," Bishop John D'Arcy. "But a bishop must teach the Catholic faith 'in season and out of season,' and he teaches not only by his words -- but by his actions."
Below is a statement released by Bishop John D'Arcy in the website of the diocese.
