O’Hara, Auxiliary Bishop in New York, will be present for this Mass and procession and will preach.
All liturgical celebrations will take place at the Church of St Catherine of Siena, 411 East 68th Street. The liturgies are open to the public and all are welcome to participate in them, but seating will be reserved for registered participants (full time and day registration can be made here: www.sacraliturgiausa.org). Because we cannot predict the numbers of non-registered attendees, we cannot guarantee that we will have sufficient booklets for those who have not registered.
Sacra Liturgia is profoundly grateful to Cardinal Dolan for welcoming our celebrants to New York and for facilitating the participation of Bishop O’Hara, as well as to Father Jordan Kelly, OP, Pastor of St Catherine’s, and his team, for their liturgical hospitality.
