This church is really close to the apartment. They had an 8:30 mass that worked well with the schedule of the day......John spent time in Central Park with the Sunday New York Times and a LOT of runners..... There was a wonderful soloist and the church organ was great too. The mass was pretty well attended with families.... perhaps because it has a school associated with it. The beauty of the New York City churches makes it very easy to make that a part of the weekend for me!
