The Diocese of Brooklyn announced that it is closing six Catholic academies due to financial difficulties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Utilizing personal stories from his interactions with the New York Police Department, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan said in a newspaper column that the city’s police officers deserve better treatment and broad support on the job.
Catholic churches in Brooklyn and Queens are reopening today, not for Mass, but for private prayer with no more than 10 people at a time allowed inside.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York and Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn are making plans for Catholics to return to Mass and the sacraments in a way that cares for both the “souls and bodies of our people.”
The Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, will be holding a press conference at 11 a.m. today at Our Saviour Parish in Manhattan, regarding the reopening of churches in the archdiocese amid the coronavirus pandemic.
More than 1,000 Catholics have signed an open letter in protest of Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s phone call with President Donald Trump and a follow-up interview on Fox News, labeling the president as “not pro-life.”
President Donald Trump used a call with faith leaders last Friday, ostensibly to discuss when religious institutions might reopen to large-scale public services amid the COVID-19 pandemic, to solicit support for his bid for reelection.
There’s been no shortage of issues on which New York’s governor and cardinal have clashed, but in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic they find themselves united – with the cardinal hoping this crisis leads to newfound respect for the value of all human life.
Bishop DiMarzio looks forward to the investigation of the allegation made against him and having his good name cleared and restored.
An estimated 25,000 New Yorkers took to the streets in a “Solidarity March” in protest of anti-Semitism on Jan. 5, among them Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York and Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, who told the crowd “we are all brothers and sisters under the one God who made us.”
