The life of popular Jewish New Yorker and former Mayor Ed Koch was celebrated during a special mass Sunday morning at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan said since Koch passed away, he’d been searching for a way to say a private goodbye to the man.

The former Mayor died in February from congestive heart failure.

He was 88.
