Cardinal Dolan sick with flu, doesn’t lead Midnight Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral

MANHATTAN — The familiar voice of Cardinal Timothy Dolan was missed at the Christmas Midnight Mass.

The Archbishop of New York, out sick with the flu, did not serve as the celebrant. Bishop John O’Hara, auxiliary bishop of the New York Archdiocese, filled his shoes.

Thousands gathered to usher in Christmas at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

After Midnight Mass, worshipers will return to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for Christmas Day Mass. For the Christmas Day Mass schedule, click here.
