On March 16, Bishop Douglas J. Lucia announced that, in light of the spread of the coronavirus, public Masses will be suspended until further notice. The bishop previously issued a dispensation releasing Catholics in the Diocese of Syracuse from the obligation to attend Mass.
While public Masses are suspended, priests are allowed and encouraged to offer Mass in private and many are offering livestreamed or pre-recorded celebrations for parishioners. Below are some options for watching the celebration of Mass on television and online.
Each week, local television stations in each region of the diocese air a pre-recorded Sunday Mass produced by Syracuse Catholic Television (CTV):
