Attending Easter Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral often required winning a lottery. Not this year.
Traditionally, getting a front-pew seat for Easter Sunday Solemn Mass at New York City’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral has been an impossibility for all but those who are extraordinarily well connected.
This year, social distancing due to the coronavirus has changed all that. For anyone who would like to be up close and personal at St. Patrick’s and many other churches. Live streaming on Easter Sunday will provide the front-pew experience to anyone who would like to attend.
WPIX11 will broadcast live from the cathedral on its website and its Facebook page and it will be streamed on the Cathedral’s YouTube page, starting at 10am on Sunday, April 11.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services.
A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back.
In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
