Biography
Noyer was born on 17 April 1927 in Le Touquet on Rue de Londres. After his secondary studies in Boulogne-sur-Mer, Noyer studied at the University of Lille. He then entered a seminary in Arras before continuing his Catholic training at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, where he earned a degree in scholastic philosophy.
Noyer became a professor at the Collège Haffreingue in Boulogne-sur-Mer in 1952. He left this position in 1963 to teach in Arras, where he stayed until 1970. He was a priest at the St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Le Touquet, where he became rector in 1976. Noyer left Le Touquet in 1987, when he was appointed Bishop of Amiens. He stayed at the Amiens Cathedral, and became Bishop Emeritus on 10 March 2003.
Ideology
In 2002, Noyer actively advocated against the election of National Rally party nominee for President, Jean-Marie Le Pen, saying that his rhetoric leads to "false security of banter, isolation, racism and xenophobia".
Noyer participated in the mass for Jacques Gaillot's 75th birthday on 18 September 2012.
Jacques Noyer died on 2 June 2020 in Le Touquet at the age of 93.
