Irish Language Mass to be Held at Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Saturday, March 13th, 2010, at 12 p.m., at Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Mott and Prince streets in Manhattan.

This Mass is co-sponsored by The New York Irish History Roundtable, NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House, and Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral, on the corner of Mott and Prince streets in Manhattan.

As in previous years,  we will have readings and liturgy in the Irish language, Irish liturgical music, and accompaniment by Jared Lamenzo on the Cathedral’s historic 1868 Erben organ. Father Aidan O’Driscoll from County Cork will be celebrating the mass for us this year, and Paddy Connolly will perform his duties as Cantor in the Irish language.

After the Mass, the Washington Square Harp & Shamrock Orchestra will entertain the crowd with live ceili music, and refreshments will be provided.

Come and join us to celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick! There is no charge to  attend.
