VATICAN CITY (KMOX) –  Up to 200 St. Louis residents are expected to make the trek to witness Saturday’s elevation of native son and New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan to the rank of Cardinal.

Among them, Cardinal-elect Dolan’s youngest brother Pat, who’s with about 30 members of Dolan’s immediate family.

“It’s intensifying, the excitement’s building minute by minute,” Pat Dolan said of the gathering in Vatican City for tomorrow’s ceremony.

The family’s joined by dozens of local priests, colleagues and childhood friends.

Pat Dolan added that his soon-to-be-Cardinal brother told him not to tell the people of New York, but St. Louis will always be home for him.
