Pro-Palestinian protesters interrupt Easter Vigil service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC

Easter Vigil Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City interrupted by Pro-Palestinian protesters.

As thousands of Pro-Palestinian protesters gathered in Times Square earlier in the day for “Palestinian Land Day,” they took their protest to the Easter Vigil service at St. Patrick’s cathedral in New York City on Saturday evening.

During the second reading, chants of “Free, free Palestine” could be heard ringing out during the service. 

The protesters were quickly taken out of the service moments after, as many in attendance did not acknowledge the outburst. 


The mass was led by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York.

As the Church enters Holy Week and Christ’s suffering on the cross and his resurrection are made present to us so vividly, we are connected to the very source of hope,” the statement said.

Since the start of the war in Israel, the USCCB has consistently issued calls for peace, prayer, fasting and the release of hostages captured by Hamas. The conference has also decried the deaths of civilians.
