On February 18, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially elevated New York’s Archbishop, Timothy Dolan, to Cardinal during a formal ceremony at the Vatican.
Since he first came to New York, Cardinal Dolan has been actively involved in the work of the Catholic Charities federation — blessing agency facilities, meeting with program participants, volunteering alongside our Junior Board — even building gingerbread houses with children.
