Archbishop John R Quinn, RIP -- June 27, 2017

Archdiocese of San Francisco

I was sad to learn of the passing of John R Quinn, Archbishop Emeritus of San Francisco.  I remember when he was appointed in 1977.  He gave up the mansion on Broadway and lived in the rectory of Saint Thomas Apostle on Balboa.  He pushed for social justice.  Many people hated him for closing parishes, but he didn't have a choice.  He was strongly for interfaith cooperation.  Appropriately, he died in a Jewish nursing home.
