Daniel Lytle Dolan (born May 28, 1951) is an American Catholic bishop, who was initially made a priest while belonging to the Society of St. Pius X under Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in the 1970s. Dolan was born in Detroit, Michigan to a family of Irish ancestry and began preparing for the priesthood at 14 years of age, dedicating his entire life to the faith. Since 1973, he had believed that the Second Vatican Council was heretical and Giovanni Montini not a true Pope (a position known as sedevacantism), as the SSPX was making gestures to the Vatican, in 1983 nine American priests split as the Society of St. Pius V, including Dolan.
By 1989, Dolan began to move closer to the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) and after discussions, it was revealed that they agreed on doctrinal issues. Dolan was consecrated a Catholic Bishop on November 30, 1993 by Bishop Mark Pivarunas of the CMRI, whose line goes back to Ngo Dinh Thuc, Archbishop of Huế in Vietnam. Throughout his religious life, Dolan has typically been based in Ohio and today serves the St Gertrude the Great Church in Cincinnati, as well as visiting other communities in the United States, Mexico and Europe. Sermons and discussions of Bishop Dolan have featured on Restoration Radio.
