Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve 2013


I'm travelling to New York for my Honeymoon and will be there over Christmas and New Year. We are staying in the Chelsea area (26th Street between 7th & 8th Ave) of Manhattan. Could anyone tell me if there is a Catholic Church nearby for Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve?

Two suggestions:

re-post in the New York City forum; this is NY State.

Put Chelsea, Manhattan into google, click on the map, in "search nearby". put Catholic Church.

There are several nice churches in the neighborhood... all walking distance.

St. Francis of Assisi (7th Ave and 31st St) will be crowded. Get there early.

St. John the Baptist (7th Ave and 30th St).

(FYI, St. Francis and St. John are across the street from Madison Square Garden.)

Church of St. Michael (424 West 34th St @ 9th Ave) Phone: (212) 563-2575 has a Christmas eve vigil mass at 7 pm. A traditional service with Latin prayers.

There is also a small Catholic Church (St. Columba) on 25th St. in Chelsea, but it's swarming with little kids and large families... very informal.

St. Patrick's will be extremely crowded, high security, and you need a ticket to attend Midnight Mass.
