Diocese of Albany to Live Stream Midnight Mass from the Cathedral
with Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger on Christmas Eve

For the first time, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany will live stream Midnight Mass from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Christmas Eve. Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger will be the principal celebrant. The live stream will be available for viewing on the diocesan website at www.rcda.org on Dec. 24, beginning with the Office of Readings and Anthems and Carols at 11:15 p.m. and Mass at midnight. The Mass will also be available there for playback throughout Christmas week.

In addition, the Diocese will live stream Christmas Day Mass from St. Patrick’s Church in Ravena on the diocesan website at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 25. That Mass will also be available for playback on demand throughout Christmas Day and the week following.

The Diocese live streams Sunday Mass from St. Patrick’s weekly at 9:30 a.m., as well as special liturgies from the Cathedral. Visit www.rcda.org for more information and updates.

Media Advisory: Please notify Mary DeTurris Poust, director of communications, at mary.deturrispoust@rcda.org or 518.453-6618, if you plan to cover Midnight Mass with Bishop Scharfenberger at the Cathedral. The Office of Readings with Anthems and Carols will begin at 11:15 p.m. on Dec. 24, so any cameras/equipment would need to be set up in advance of that in designated areas. Thank you.
