Archbishop John Hughes Memorial Dedication

Cardinal Timothy Dolan Dedicates Memorial to New York’s First Archbishop

Cardinal Dolan unveils Archbishop John Hughes Memorial

The AOH of greater New York took part in a historic moment this past weekend as Timothy Cardinal Dolan visited The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral to unveil a monument dedicated to the first Archbishop of New York, John Hughes.

Capacity Crowds at The Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral

The memorial was unveiled and blessed during a Vespers Service in which a capacity crowd of over 750 worshipers left standing room only inside the 200 year old church.

Rowan Gillespie with Hughes Monument

The 12 foot tall memorial, which features a bust of Archbishop Hughes, was created by renowned sculptor Rowan Gillespie.  Funds for the memorial were provided by The Knights of Columbus, Friendly Sons of St. Patrick of Morris County, and The Ancient Order of Hibernians of New York County. 

AOH Members Re-enact 1844 Defense of The Cathedral before Vespers

There was an particularly proud moment before the Vespers Service  began as members of The Ancient Order of Hibernians surrounded the Basilica in a re-enactment of the events of 1844, where then Archbishop John Hughes called out the members of the AOH to defend the church from being burned to the ground by native No-Nothing mobs.  Several members of the Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers took part in the re-enactment and attended the Vespers Service.

Here is a video of the Opening Procession

Cardinal Dolan spoke of the historical importance of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, while also speaking of the bright future for the church and its parishioners.   “This church is not a museum”, said Dolan, “This is Old Cathedral is also a living, breathing and vibrant parish!”  Cardinal Dolan also noted that he was proud to be wearing a cross that had belonged to Archbishop Hughes.

The AOH New York County Board helped raise funds for the monument

The ceremonies marked the completion of the 6 year long celebration marking the 200th anniversary of the founding of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral.  Msgr. Sakano, the Pastor of the Basilica, thanked the many people who made this day possible.  “This Church will always be your home” said Sakano when thanking the AOH.

     Sean Tallon’s Mother Eileen and sister Rosaleen thanked the GAA Minor Board and the AOH for keeping his memory alive at the tournament’s opening ceremony.  A moment of silence was then observed to remember Past AOH New York State President John Egan, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident the previous day.  John was a big supporter of the Sean Tallon Tournament and was planning on attending the event that day.
