Cardinal Dolan chosen as Notre Dame commencement speaker

Catholic World News - March 06, 2013

The University of Notre Dame has announced that its commencement speaker this year will be Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, the president of the US bishops’ conference.

The choice of Cardinal Dolan—who will also receive an honorary doctorate—contrasts sharply with the university’s controversial decision to honor President Barack Obama at commencement ceremonies in 2009. Cardinal Dolan and President Obama have been political adversaries in the battle over the contraceptive mandate in the new federal health-care program.
