Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, today released the following statement regarding the passing of Detective Steven McDonald.
“Detective Steven McDonald was an icon of mercy and forgiveness, a prophet of the dignity of all human life, a shining example of the best of what the New York Police Department represents, a loving husband and father, and a fervent and faithful Catholic.
My prayerful condolences to his loving wife Patti Ann, his son Conor, and all of his fellow officers of the NYPD. May he rest in peace.”
