Brooklyn’s New Bishop to deliver Homily in Spanish
The Diocese of Brooklyn will mark the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with a special Mass this afternoon to be celebrated by Brooklyn’s new Bishop, Robert Brennan, at 1:30 p.m., at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, located at 856 Pacific Street, in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn. Retired Auxiliary Bishop Octavio Cisneros will concelebrate the Mass.
This joyous cultural celebration, organized every year by the Mexican Apostolate, will include Mariachis singing “Las Mañanitas” and the spectacular Lighting of the Torches at 2:30 p.m. in front of the Co-Cathedral. After the lighting, the torch-lit pilgrimages will begin heading to 38 churches in Brooklyn and Queens.
The Mass will be broadcast live on NET-TV beginning at 1:15 p.m. (Channel 30-Optimum, Channel 97-Spectrum, and Channel 548-Verizon FIOS) and live-streamed on www.netny.tv.
