STATEMENT OF EDWARD CARDINAL EGAN ON BISHOP DIMARZIO’S TENTH ANNIVERSARY IN THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN
With the greatest of pleasure I extend to His Excellency, The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio my warmest best wishes on the occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of his appointment as Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn. Bishop DiMarzio has done immense good here in New York over the past decade, and I know that he will do even more over the years that lie ahead. It has been a joy working with him during my tenure both as Archbishop and Archbishop-Emeritus. The Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Brooklyn are united in our service to the citizens of our beloved City, both Catholic and Non-Catholic, as never before, and this is a singular blessing for us all– clergy, religious, and laity alike. For all of this I thank the Lord each and every day, as I thank Him too for the pleasure of expressing heartfelt congratulations to a brother Bishop whom I highly esteem and genuinely admire.
Edward Cardinal Egan
Archbishop Emeritus of New York
