Jean Marcel Honoré (   ) (13 August 1920 – 28 February 2013) was a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church and a former Archbishop of Tours.[1] He was born in Saint-Brice-en-Coglès.

He was ordained on 29 June 1943 after studying at the seminary in Rennes, and from 1958 to 1964 was secretary general of the National Commission for Religious Education and director of the National Centre of Religious Teaching. He was made Bishop of Évreux in 1972 and Archbishop of Tours in 1981. Honoré was known as a specialist in the works of Cardinal Newman.

Honoré retired as Archbishop of Tours in 1997 at the age of 76. Honoré was created cardinal by Pope John Paul II in 2001. Honoré died on 28 February 2013.[2] On hearing the news, Pope Benedict XVI sent a telegram to Bernard-Nicolas Aubertin and asked the Lord to "welcome this pastor who has served the Church with devotion in Catholic education and catechesis into His peace and His true light."[3]
