Kaine Statement On Passing Of Most Rev. DiLorenzo

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on the passing of the Most Reverend Francis DiLorenzo, Bishop of Richmond:

“Anne and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Bishop DiLorenzo. The Richmond Diocese has been our family’s spiritual home for over three decades, and I remember vividly seeing the Bishop installed at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart 13 years ago. He pledged then to meet as many parishioners as he could, and he kept his promise, making himself familiar to Catholics throughout Virginia and as a friend to our family. As we remember his thoughtfulness, conviction, and sense of humor, we pray.”
