Today we celebrate Archbishop Timothy Dolan’s first anniversary as the tenth Archbishop of New York. Throughout the day, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Ask Christ the Head and Shepherd of the Church to continue to inspire and protect the archbishop’s pastoral service to this local church.
To mark today’s anniversary, the New York Times has published an overview of Archbishop Dolan’s first year in cathedra.
in these trying times
when the spirit of the age
threatens Christian values,
give our bishop holiness of life
and wisdom to direct and guide our archdiocesan
family so that we may grow in your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
