After 10:15 Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, Cardinal Timothy Dolan was delighted to receive a $5,000 check for his Notre Dame restoration fund from Joe Heenan and his sons Michael and Ryan, who had driven from Philadelphia to deliver the donation in person.
The money, donated by the 248-year-old Irish society the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick’s, where Heenan is resident historian, is just the latest wallet-loosening by generous Americans to help restore the 12th-century Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, which was ravaged by fire in April.
So far, $14 million has flowed into the cardinal’s “St. Patricks to Notre Dame” fund and he is looking forward to meeting an emissary from Notre Dame who is visiting New York this week to say thank you.
