For the sixth consecutive year, the New York Irish History Roundtable, Glucksman Ireland House NYU, Sir Patrick Charities, 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 Holy Family Parish in the Bronx, and concelebrated by Fr. Aidan O’Driscoll of County Cork, and 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, the Washington Square Harp & Shamrock Orchestra will entertain the crowd with live ceili music and the Niall O'Leary School of Dance will perform.
So, we will enjoy the Mass, followed by ceili (great music), craic (great conversation), dancing, and refreshments. Come and join us to celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick!
There is absolutely no charge to attend. Free-will contributions will be gratefully accepted.
