Dolan to be city's new archbishop

February 23, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan will be appointed the next Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, the Associated Press has learned.

The Vatican is expected to announce Dolan's appointment today, according to a church official with knowledge of when Vatican appointments are announced. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the selection.

New York Cardinal Edward Egan, 76, is retiring after nine years as the city's archbishop.

Dolan, 59, has been Milwaukee's archbishop since 2002.

He previously served as rector of the North American College in Rome, the elite seminary for U.S. priests.
