SEATTLE – A funeral is planned Wednesday for retired Seattle Archbishop Raymond G. Hunthausen, who served as the bishop of Helena, Montana, from 1962 to 1975 and as archbishop of Seattle from 1975 to 1991.

The Seattle Archdiocese says a funeral mass is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. James Cathedral in Seattle. The 96-year-old died July 22 at his home in Helena.

On Tuesday, his body will be lying in state for viewing at St. James from 2 to 5 p.m. with a vigil service at 7:30 p.m.

The archdiocese has said Hunthausen was the last living American bishop to have participated in all four sessions of the Second Vatican Council, called by the pope in the early 1960s to modernize the church.

His legacy includes support for the needy, including the Hunthausen Fund in Helena at Good Samaritan Ministries and the Hunthausen Fund at St. James Cathedral in Seattle, where contributions can be made in lieu of flowers.
