Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York will be in Anchorage next week providing an opportunity for Catholics as well as Evangelicals and Orthodox believers to hear from what Time Magazine called one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" for 2012 along with being a possible name for Pope in many circles after Pope Benedict XVI stepped down.
Cardinal Dolan was also among the 115 cardinals who gathered in Rome and ultimately selected Pope Francis as the new head of the Catholic Church last year.
As a former President of the United States Conference on Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Dolan has spoken very eloquently and passionately in support of Biblical marriage, the sanctity of life and religious liberty, particularly regarding the ObamaCare mandate which forced private employers to provide co-pay coverage for contraception and abortion causing drugs.
Alaska Family Action highly encourages pro-family Alaskans to attend one of the following public events that will surely be filled to capacity.
