Christmas Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral draws thousands

Posted: Updated:

Christmas Mass at St. Patrick's cathedral is always a big draw and, for those able to snag a seat, it is a Christmas gift of sorts.

The perennial Christmas Mass at St. Patrick's was celebrated throughout the day. The only big difference this year, was the scaffolding basically covering the entire church.

Despite the extensive restoration both outside and inside the cathedral, it didn't stop the thousands of people from showing up, many from other countries.

Like one family from Chile. They arrived in New York Wednesday morning and went straight to St. Pats.

And what can be more Christmassy than Midnight Mass at St. Patrick's cathedral?

Cardinal Dolan greeted those in attendance with handshakes and hugs including Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

It was Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Kelly's last midnight mass as Mayor and Commissioner.

Cardinal Dolan's midnight message was about the restoration of faith, love and compassion.
