Death of His Eminence Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte

Death of His Eminence Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte

His Eminence Jean-Claude Cardinal Turcotte, Archbishop Emeritus of Montreal, died on April 8, 2015, after a lengthy illness. He was 78 years old. The late Cardinal was a priest for 56 years and Bishop for 33 years. He served as the ninth Archbishop of Montreal, from 1990 to 2012. He was made Cardinal by Saint John Paul II at the Consistory of November 26, 1994.

Archbishop Anthony Mancini in a recent newspaper interview said of Cardinal Turcotte, “He was a home boy, not a Rome boy,” referring to the sense of importance the Cardinal placed on his ministry to the faithful of his diocese. Archbishop Mancini was a seminary student when he first met the priest who would become a cardinal and describes him as very approachable, down-to-earth and gregarious. As a priest, our Archbishop served in the Archdiocese of Montreal under Cardinal Turcotte who appointed him Vicar General of that diocese in 1998.
