Divine Child


The annual Divino Niño (Divine Child) Mass was celebrated Nov. 1 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, with Father Fredy Patiño serving as principal celebrant and homilist. Cardinal Dolan spoke to the congregation at the Spanish-language liturgy offered for the people of Colombia who have died of Covid-19. Father Patiño, who was born and raised in Colombia, is pastor of St. Joseph and St. Mary Immaculate parish on Staten Island. The Mass is a traditional Colombian faith and cultural celebration.
