NEW YORK - (AP) - New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan has been named cardinal by the Vatican.

Dolan is one of 22 prelates who will be elevated to cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church in a formal ceremony Feb. 18.

Pope Benedict XVI made the announcement on Friday following an Epiphany Mass that ends the Vatican's top Christmas celebrations.

The Archdiocese of New York said Dolan will speak to the media after celebrating Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan Friday morning.

Cardinals are the pope's key advisers and are members of the group that will eventually elect Benedict's successor.

The pope also named prelates from Hong Kong, Berlin, Prague, Toronto and Florence, Italy, and some Key Vatican offices.
