Manhattan’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral canceled Mass, immediately after the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York declared Saturday that it was suspending all Masses in its jurisdiction. Catholics in Seattle previously canceled Masses, while Mormon Church leaders have indefinitely stopped services close to the entire world.
