Mark your calendars. The Blessing and Unveiling of the Archbishop John Hughes Memorial by Cardinal Timothy Dolan will take place on Sunday November 22, 2015 at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. There will be Vespers in the Cathedral at 3:00 PM, prior to the unveiling of the Hughes Monument and a reception immediately afterwards. We will memorialize the many contributions of the remarkable Visionary and Leader that Archbishop Hughes was. Further Details will follow. Rowan Gillespie, the renowned sculptor, is well under way with constructing the monument. Please see the attached pictures of a scaled down version of the monument which will have “Dagger John’s” famous signature inscribed in the Plinth just below the bust.
Please contact me with any questions that you may have. Thank You very much.
