New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan says he is “safe and secure” after a missile attack during his mission trip to the Holy Land.

His Eminence arrived in Israel last Friday. As the chair of the Papal Agency, the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, or CNEWA, he’s visiting different religious representatives and checking on current humanitarian efforts.

While in Bethlehem over the weekend, Cardinal Dolan says he had to take shelter when Iran launched more than 300 ballistic missiles and drones against Israeli targets.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of New York says Cardinal Dolan will continue with his planned schedule. He’ll leave the Holy Land on Thursday, Apr. 16.
