Fordham embraced two newcomers to the University community on Sept. 13 at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit.

New York City’s newly installed prelate, Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, celebrated the Mass at the University Church. It was his second official visit to the Rose Hill campus since his elevation.

Archbishop Dolan referred to the University Church as the most venerable of chapels in the Bronx, and said that Fordham and the Archdiocese of New York have been “sacred allies” for 168 years.

Monsignor Joseph G. Quinn, J.D., J.C.L., the University’s new vice president for University mission and ministry, read to the packed congregation from the Gospel. He came to Fordham from the Diocese of Scranton, where he served with distinction in several parishes, and took his new position on July 31.
