The Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans says retired Archbishop Philip Hannan has moved from his home on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain to a nursing home in New Orleans.

A Wednesday news release said Hannan’s family and Archbishop Gregory Aymond feel the move is in the best interest of the 98-year-old Hannan as his health declines.

Hannan has moved to Chateau de Notre Dame, which he opened in 1977. The facility provides different levels of care for older residents from independent living to skilled nursing home care and hospice services.
