STATEMENT OF THE FRANCISCAN FRIARS OF THE RENEWAL ON THE DEATH OF HIS EMINENCE, EDWARD CARDINAL EGAN
The Friars wish to express their sadness upon learning of the passing of Cardinal Edward Egan.
We are profoundly grateful for the life and service of His Eminence. We remember with great affection his steady leadership as the Archbishop of New York and in particular his fatherly care and guidance of our Community. We would like to offer our prayers and condolences to his family and all those who mourn his loss.
