STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF ARCHBISHOP GEORGE H. NIEDERAUER, EMERITUS ARCHBISHOP OF SAN FRANCISCO
Let us extend our heart-felt prayers to Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone and all the family of God in the Archdiocese of San Francisco upon the passing of retired Archbishop George H. Niederauer of San Francisco. Archbishop Niederauer was a priest of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and a graduate of St. John’s Seminary, and he later became a distinguished faculty member and rector of the seminary. Let us thank God for his service and his love. I entrust him to the loving arms of our Blessed Mother Mary and I pray that God grant him peace.
