Catholic Mass

As Pope Benedict XVI left the Vatican today for the last time as pope, some Catholics in central New York were taking note.  A mass of Thanksgiving at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in downtown Syracuse marked the end Pope Benedict's ministry.

Catholics across Central New York  are learning a new translation of the Roman Missal, the basis for mass.  It's a change that goes into effect the first week of advent, which is the last week in November this year.
