NEW YORK — The Archdiocese of New York and New York’s Very Own PIX11 have partnered to broadcast Palm Sunday Mass live from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

The Archdiocese of New York and New York’s Very Own PIX11 have also partnered to broadcast Easter Sunday, April 12.

Timothy Cardinal Dolan Archbishop of New York will celebrate the Masses at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, although without a congregation present due to the coronavirus outbreak. Each Mass will be broadcast beginning at 10 a.m. throughout the tri-state area on PIX11.

As the most sacred time of the year for Christians approaches, public gatherings and worship services have been suspended due to the life-threatening public health concerns arising from COVID-19. In light of these circumstances, the Archdiocese of New York says it is grateful to PIX11 for bringing these Masses to the homebound public.

“We may not be able to gather in our churches this Easter, but, thanks to PIX 11, we’ll be together in spirit,” Cardinal Dolan said. “I look forward to praying with all of you, in a very special way, for those who have died and their families, the sick, and the doctors, nurses, and health care professionals who have been courageously fighting this disease.”

PIX11 is honored to work with the New York Archdiocese to broadcast the Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday Masses, said Bart Feder, vice president and general manager of PIX11.

“Offering access to Cardinal Dolan’s words of comfort from St. Patrick’s is a gift to our region during this most challenging time," Feder said.

PIX11 has been broadcasting Christmas Midnight Mass from St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the tri-state area for over 40 years.
