The invitation to meet the pope was extended by Donald Cardinal Wuerl. He also invited them to the canonization Mass at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Timothy Cardinal Dolan invited Bill to the prayer service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, but he has elected to stay in D.C. to do TV interviews.
Donohue will be available to do TV interviews from Washington, and Rick Hinshaw, the director of communications, will handle media requests in New York. Donohue will return at noon on Friday.
