Daniel Lytle Dolan was born in 1951 in Detroit Michigan. He began his preparation for the priesthood in 1965 at the archdiocesan minor seminary in Detroit. He continued his studies in the Cistercian Order and at the seminary of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) in Ecône, Switzerland, where he was ordained to the priesthool by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre on June 29, 1976.
As a seminarian at Ecône in autumn 1973, he had already come to the conclusion that the only logical explanation for the evil of the New Mass and the errors of Vatican II was that Paul VI, due to personal heresy, had lost the supreme pontificate. Ever since, he has steadfastly held that position regarding Paul VI and his successors, and never once acknowledged them as popes in the Canon of his Mass.
This explanation for the situation after Vatican II later came to be known popularly as "sedevacantism" (from the Latin term for the interregnum between popes).
Missionary Work in SSPX
In early 1977 Father Dolan returned to the U.S., where he acquired a reputation as an eloquent preacher, and where in a few years, he had founded over 35 traditionalist Mass centers from East coast to West.
...
Nine American priests, including Fr. Dolan, refused, and were promptly expelled from SSPX. (Four more would later join them.)
Expansion in Cincinnati
Fr. Dolan continued his missionary apostolate unchanged and increased the number of activities at his principal church, St. Gertrude the Great in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The parish, which he founded himself in 1978, is one of the largest (600 members) and best-organized in the U.S.
In 1989 Fr. Dolan initiated contacts with the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen ( CMRI).
...
In 1992 Bishop Pivarunas, with a view towards assisting clergy formerly belonging to SSPX, asked Fr. Dolan to receive episcopal consecration.
...
After considerable hesitation, Fr. Dolan agreed in mid-1993.
Episcopal Consecration
Bishop Dolan was consecrated a bishop in St. Gertrude the Great Church in Cincinnati on 30 November 1993, the Feast of St. Andrew, Apostle, during the course of Solemn Pontifical Mass.
...
Bishop Dolan continues to serve as Pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Church in Cincinnati, Ohio.
In addition Bishop Dolan conducts a modest national and international apostolate. He confirms in churches in the U.S. operated by former members of SSPX, and has also travelled extensively to conduct episcopal functions for traditionalist churches and organizations in Mexico, France, Belgium and Italy.

Detroit native Daniel Dolan, the future leader of St. Gertrude in West Chester, came to a similar conclusion.He believes the only explanation for the "evil of the New Mass and the errors of Vatican II was that Paul VI, due to personal heresy, had lost the pontificate," according to the St. Gertrude Web site.
Lefebvre ordained Dolan to the priesthood in 1976 at the Society's seminary in Switzerland.
...
Dolan returned to America and founded more than 35 traditionalist Mass centers in America, including St. Gertrude the Great Mission in 1978.
The church met for monthly Mass in rented buildings until March 1980, when it bought an old Presbyterian church building in Sharonville.
Dolan and some other priests left the Society in 1983 when they disagreed with a proposed compromise with the Vatican.
...
Dolan became a bishop in 1993 at the urging of Bishop Mark Pivarunas, superior general of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen, a group of traditional Catholic clergy and religious based in Omaha, Neb.

In early 1977 Father Dolan returned to the U.S., where he acquired a reputation as an eloquent preacher, and where in a few years, he had founded over 35 traditionalist Mass centers from East coast to West.
In early 1983, as part of a plan to compromise with the modernist Vatican, Archbishop Lefebvre attempted to impose a "liturgical reform" - the 1962 Missal of John XXIII - on SSPX's American priests. At the same time, the Archbishop insisted that the Americans accept the scandalous marriage annulments granted by modernist tribunals, and work with priests ordained according to the protestantized ordination rite promulgated by Paul VI in 1968.
Nine American priests, including Fr. Dolan, refused, and were promply expelled from SSPX. (Four more would later join them.)
