MilCatHerald: Exclusive interview with Cdl. Dolan

During an exclusive interview with Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, who returned to his former Milwaukee Archdiocese to present the Pallium Lecture on Thursday, Sept. 5, our Catholic Herald learned what the cardinal hopes for the future of the series he started 10 years ago, what he misses about Milwaukee, and got a glimpse into his life in the Big Apple.

Cardinal Dolan said he’s grateful to return to Milwaukee, where he was installed as the 10th archbishop on Aug. 28, 2002.

“I love Milwaukee. I love the archdiocese. I love the people, so any chance I get, I like coming back,” he said, adding that he planned to eat a fish fry and visit family and friends while in town.

He hopes the lecture series continues to expand as it has since its inception in 2003.

“And to be honest with you, I didn’t know it would continue. I just thought, ‘Well, let’s do it this first year to celebrate the pallium, but then it took off and there was such an interest, and the Bradley Foundation was so generous in saying, ‘Let us help you, because this is a project aligned with our mission.’ That it’s been excellent,” he said.

In New York, where he was installed as archbishop on April 15, 2009, before being appointed to the College of Cardinals on Jan. 6, 2012, Cardinal Dolan said he appreciates that people from Milwaukee continue to call, write and, that many, visit him – he invites visitors to Mass at St. Patrick Cathedral, which he usually celebrates at 7 a.m. weekdays and 10:15 a.m. on Sundays.
