History Lesson


Cardinal Dolan joined Con Edison’s Emerald Society for a celebration of Irish-American history March 5. The cardinal spoke to more than 200 employees at Con Ed’s headquarters in Union Square about one of his predecessors, Archbishop John Hughes, who led the Catholic Church in New York during a period of tremendous growth in the 19th century. The cardinal is shown in the electric operations control room with, from left, Michelle DeMascio, control room manager; John McAvoy, chairman and CEO of Con Edison; Shaun Smith, general manager; and Father Stephen Ries, the cardinal’s priest secretary.
