The resignation of Bishop Dunne, who turned 75 last October, was publicized at the Vatican June 22. Church law requires a bishop to submit his resignation as a bishop when he turns 75.

Bishop Dunne was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Rockville Centre in 1963. After serving as associate pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Church, East Northport, Bishop Dunne was assigned to be associate director of the Diocesan Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (now the Office of Faith Formation and Worship) which oversees the religious education of young people outside the Catholic school system and the continuing education of adults.  He also served as associate director of the Family Life Bureau which included conducting programs to prepare couples for marriage.

In 1970 Bishop Dunne was appointed spiritual director at Immaculate Conception Seminary where he served until he was appointed associate vicar for religious, the office which acts as liaison between the bishop and the woman and men religious who serve in the diocese.

In 1974 Bishop Dunne became associate pastor of Corpus Christi Church, Mineola.  In 1978 he was named director of the Priest Personnel Office, which involves acting as liaison between the bishop and the priests of the Diocese as well as facilitating the assignment of priests.  Bishop Dunne also served on the Priest Personnel Policy Board.  In 1984 he was appointed pastor of Blessed Sacrament Church, Valley Stream.

On October 25, 1988, Pope John Paul II appointed him auxiliary bishop of the Rockville Centre Diocese and he was ordained on December 13th, 1988 at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre.
