Church Masses Canceled In Archdiocese Of New York Beginning March 14, 2020

Church Masses Canceled In Archdiocese Of New York Beginning March 14, 2020

In a move that’s not all too unexpected the Archdiocese of New York announced on Saturday, March 14, 2020 that all masses in the Archdioscese of New York would be canceled. All due to the Coronavirus outbreak/pandemic.

Churches will remain open for private prayer.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, (appointed the tenth Archbishop of New York in February 2009) stated:

“Let us pray for all who are sick, as well as doctors, nurses, caregivers, and all those working hard to combat the disease.  We should also remember those whose lives have been otherwise disrupted, especially anyone who has lost income from a loss of work during this difficult time.”

This all follows suspension of public masses as well as some church closures in cities like Seattle, Virginia, Washington DC and New Rochelle which has been hard hit with clusters of the Coronavirus as well as the creation of a containment zone.

Private Mass will be celebrated at Midtown Manhattan’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral which would be available on cable systems through the Catholic Faith Network as well as on the official site: www.catholicfaithnetwork.org. There would also be a live-stream on the Saint Patrick’s Cathedral website at www.saintpatrickscathedral.org/live, and broadcast on radio on The Catholic Channel of Sirius XM (Channel 129).
