Pope Names Successor for Retired Archbishop

June 26, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Monsignor Timothy M. Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in St. Louis who headed the American seminary in Rome, was named by the pope to succeed retired Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland.

Pope John Paul II accepted Weakland's resignation May 24, a day after he acknowledged a $450,000 settlement with Paul Marcoux, who said Weakland sexually assaulted him in 1979. Weakland was the highest-ranking American cleric to admit settling a sexual assault allegation against himself.

Dolan, 52, served five years as secretary to two papal delegates to the United States in Washington, D.C. From 1994 to 2001, he served as rector of the Pontifical North American College, an elite seminary in Rome for men selected by their bishops.

He left that post upon his appointment to St. Louis.
