Statement from the Arizona Catholic Conference on the Passing of Sen. John McCain

PHOENIX (Aug. 27, 2018) — The Bishops of the Arizona Catholic Conference released the following statement on the passing of Senator John McCain:

“John McCain is an American hero who served his country with the utmost admiration in both the Navy and the U.S. Senate. His patriotism and dedicated service will long be remembered for generations to come.

Although he will be remembered by all Americans, we are fortunate as Arizonans that we can call Senator McCain one of our own.

As we approach the upcoming memorial services this week, we will continue to pray for the repose of his soul and that his entire family receive the graces they need in this difficult time.”
