The NCBC Notes the Passing of Cardinal Francis George

April 17, 2015

The National Catholic Bioethics Center notes with sadness the passing of its beloved board member His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, OMI.  Cardinal George had been appointed to the board of directors for life and served for the past 22 years.  He was vitally important to the growth of the Center and the development of its many programs.

Cardinal George was an intellectual leader within the Catholic Church and shepherd for Chicago, the third-largest diocese in the United States. He was the eighth archbishop and the spiritual leader of its more than 2 million Catholics, but his influence reached well beyond his episcopal  jurisdiction.

He was a valued advisor to the Holy See, one of the electors of Pope Benedict XVI, and a man who fearlessly advocated the truth of the Catholic Faith, in season and out of season.

The National Catholic Bioethics Center benefitted from his wise counsel while he was with us and it can certainly count on his prayers now that he has returned to his Father’s house.
