Wiki

Timothy Michael Dolan (born February 6, 1950) is an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He is the tenth and current Archbishop of New York, having previously served as Archbishop of Milwaukee from 2002 to 2009.

The eldest of five children, Timothy Dolan was born in St. Louis, Missouri, to Robert (d. 1977) and Shirley (née Radcliffe) Dolan. His father was an aircraft engineer, working as a floor supervisor at McDonnell Douglas. He has two brothers, one of whom is a former radio talk-show host, and two sisters. The family later moved to Ballwin, where they attended Holy Infant Church. He exhibited a strong interest in the priesthood from an early age, once saying, "I can never remember a time I didn’t want to be a priest." He would also pretend to celebrate Mass as a child.

Dolan entered St. Louis Preparatory Seminary South in Shrewsbury in 1964, and later obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy from Cardinal Glennon College. He was sent by John Cardinal Carberry to further his studies in Rome, where he attended the Pontifical North American College and the Angelicum, earning a Licentiate of Sacred Theology.
