STATEMENT BY CARDINAL DOLAN ON THE RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT BY FATHER DONALD HARRINGTON, PRESIDENT OF ST. JOHN’S UNIVERSITY
 
Father Harrington has been a beacon of light for Catholic education in the United States for decades.  His leadership and thoughtful planning of growth for one of this country’s largest Catholic universities have brought a very high level of  success to the St John’s community.  And tens of thousands of students, alumni and faculty have been enriched by his spiritual leadership. 
 
I am delighted to learn that in his retirement Father Harrington will be available to the Church to continue to champion Catholic education.   I expect to call on him.
