The Diocese of Brooklyn will mark the 200th anniversary of the first Catholic Church to be built on Long Island: the Cathedral Basilica of St. James.

The Cathedral Basilica of St. James has a long history of generations that lived out their faith inside the church’s walls. Joining Currents News to talk about the Jubilee celebration and what the big day will look like is Father Alonzo Cox, Director of Liturgy for the diocese.

All are invited to attend the Mass on Sunday Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. – which will be celebrated by Bishops Robert Brennan and John Barres of the Diocese of Rockville Centre and Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York.
