Archbishop Dolan 'Surprised' By His Election
Patricia Zapor, Catholic Herald
Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York was as surprised as anyone today as he was elected president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
His election was an unprecedented departure from the USCCB’s tradition of electing the conference vice president to the presidency.
Archbishop Dolan said shortly after being elected: “I’m surprised, I’m honoured, I’m flattered and a tad intimidated.”
