St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church (Interesting Link) will host the event -- expected to draw about 1,000 people -- with a Mass and prayer, followed by a reception. Each parish and school will be represented.
"Visits can take various forms," said Monsignor James Dorney, co-vicar of Staten Island. "But in this one, (Dolan) comes specifically to meet the people."
Tuesday's visit serves as the official introduction as prescribed by the New York Archdiocese, which serves 2.5 million Catholics in 19 geographic areas in the state.
Tickets have been distributed to parishes and Catholic school principals. Dolan is expected to meet with clergy Tuesday afternoon.
Dolan was named Archbishop of New York by Pope Benedict XVI in February. Just after his installation in April, Dolan started the vicariate visits in the upper region near Albany.
Archbishop Dolan, a native of Missouri, was most recently head of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He has served five years as secretary to the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, D.C. and as vice rector of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, serving also as director of Spiritual Formation and professor of Church History.
Admission to Tuesday's vicariate visit is by ticket only. Contact your parish or Catholic school if interested in a ticket.
