On Christmas Eve, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan went to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue to celebrate Mass for patients and staff in the Catholic Chapel. The Cardinal attended a reception after Mass with participants, toured the adult and pediatric emergency rooms and greeted patients and staff. In his homily, Cardinal Dolan said that if Joseph and Mary had come to Bellevue, they would not have been turned away because Bellevue turns no one away.
