WASHINGTON—Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, Chairman of the Board of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), will represent the U.S. Bishops at the Saturday, January 23, funeral of Archbishop Joseph Serge Miot in Port-au-Prince Haiti. Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), asked Archbishop Dolan to serve as the representative of the U.S. Bishops.

Msgr. David Malloy, General Secretary of the USCCB, will accompany Archbishop Dolan on his journey. Their presence in Haiti is a sign of the solidarity and concern the U.S. Bishops have for the people of Haiti following the devastating January 12 earthquake.

While in Haiti, Archbishop Dolan will also offer support and assess the relief efforts of CRS to determine how the U.S. Church can best respond.
