Mass will be celebrated in The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in association with the New York Irish History Roundtable and Glucksman Ireland House NYU.
For the ninth consecutive year, the New York Irish History Roundtable, Glucksman Ireland House NYU, and The Basilica of Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral will celebrate an Irish-language Mass.
The Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Andrew O’Connor of St. Mary’s Parish on Grand Street in Manhattan, and concelebrated by Monsignor Donald Sakano, pastor of Old St. Patrick’s. There will be Irish liturgical music by Cantor Paddy Connolly with accompaniment by Jared Lamenzo on the Cathedral’s historic 1868 Erben organ.
Following the Mass, there will be a reception indoors in the newly-renovated St. Patrick’s Youth Center Auditorium on Mulberry Street.
Renowned Trad musicians Donie Carroll and Friends will entertain the crowd with live ceili music, and we will have Irish Step Dancers performing from the Niall O’Leary School of Irish Dance. And, last but not least, there will be Irish soda bread and Kerrygold butter and coffee & tea available.
So, we will enjoy the Mass, followed by ceili (great music), craic (great conversation), dancing, Irish soda bread, and tea & coffee. Come and join us to celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick!
There is no charge to attend. Free-will contributions will be gratefully accepted.
