After serving as Auxiliary Bishop of New York; Bishop of Metuchen, New Jersey; and Archbishop of Newark, Theodore McCarrick was installed as Archbishop of Washington in January 2001. Just seven weeks after his installation, he was elevated to the College of Cardinals. During his five years leading the Archdiocese of Washington, Cardinal McCarrick placed special emphasis on three areas: education; vocations; and the needs of new immigrants, particularly in the Latino community.
Cardinal McCarrick is well known for his work on international human rights and religious freedom. A tireless leader who has helped the poor and disenfranchised, the Cardinal has sought justice and promoted peace. His retirement has not slowed him down! Join Fr. Thomas Rosica in this WITNESS interview with Cardinal McCarrick during the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin in June 2011.
