Contacting Cardinal Dolan

Does anyone know if Cardinal Dolan has a personal email? I want to contact him.

He probably does, but I doubt that’s common knowledge.

Most bishops have a personal email – and guard it pretty well. There should be a contact link on the Archdiocese of NY website where you can email Cardinal Dolan’s public email address.

Or where you can contact his secretary.

Yes. People should always assume that emails for bishops, priests who are popular speakers, etc., are being read and vetted by someone else first.


You and many other people, I would guess. :smirk:

Ain’t gonna happen through private email.

I don’t believe the Cardinal has a public email address published let alone a private one. Typically your best bet is to call the main number and ask to speak to a secretary in the Chancery or the Cardinals secretary. Ask her what the best way to send a message to the Cardinal is.

I imagine every bishop is different but in my diocese they request a written letter, which is reviewed by the bishop and then directed to an appropriate person for a response. Bishop does actually see them every letter addressed to him, though the response rarely comes from him.
