Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, was the guest of honor at a reception on July 20 that included some of New York City’s top dignitaries.
The event, held in the 12th Floor Lounge at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, was hosted by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of the Diocese of Brooklyn.
Although the bishop was unable to attend, Auxiliary Bishop Frank J. Caggiano was on hand to greet the archbishop and other guests.
The St. Francis Prep School orchestra provided background music at the reception, at which Archbishop Dolan met with several city heavyweights, such as New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, New York City Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scarpetta and Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY).
Fordham was represented by Brian Byrne, Ph.D., vice president of administration for Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus; and Thomas A. Dunne, vice president for government relations and urban affairs.
