Retired archbishop from New Orleans dies at 89
NEW ORLEANS - Retired Archbishop Francis B. Schulte, who led the Archdiocese of New Orleans from 1989 to 2001, has died in his native Philadelphia.
Archdiocese spokeswoman Sarah Comiskey McDonald says Schulte died on Sunday at a church-run retirement facility. He was 89.
Schulte, who was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in 1952, served as a bishop in Philadelphia and in West Virginia before he became the archbishop in New Orleans. McDonald said Schulte moved back to Philadelphia several years after his 2001 retirement.
Archbishop Alfred Hughes replaced Schulte in New Orleans.
Funeral arrangements were pending Monday.
