STORY OF THE DAY
 

Newark Archbishop John J. Myers poised to retire

By Mark Mueller, NJ Advance Media for NJ.com , July 24, 2016

After a 15-year run as spiritual leader to more than a million Roman Catholics in New Jersey, Newark Archbishop John J. Myers is expected to submit a letter to Pope Francis this week seeking the pontiff's permission to retire.

On Tuesday, Myers turns 75, the mandatory retirement age set by canon law. It remains to be seen how swiftly Francis will move to replace him. Some bishops continue to work a year or more after they reach 75.
