Archbishop Roussin's death saddens Pope Francis

Late prelate served in Vancouver for five years
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, received a letter expressing the Holy Father's condolences to after the death of Archbishop Emeritus Raymond Roussin, SM.
"To all who mourn Archbishop Roussin's passing, especially his family and his confreres in the Society of Mary, the Holy Father cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessing as a pledge of consolation and strength in our Lord Jesus Christ."
Archbishop Roussin passed away April 24 at the age of 75. Keep an eye out on the next issue of The B.C. Catholic for memories written by locals who knew him.

The Funeral Mass will be held May 2 at St. Boniface Cathedral in Winnipeg. The Archdiocese of Vancouver will hold a Memorial Mass to honour his legacy May 8 at 12:10 at Holy Rosary Cathedral.
