The Nicasius Project - New York

Join men and women from the Archdiocese of New York in prayer, fasting and letter writing to Cardinal Timothy Dolan.


Pray much. Pray often. Join us in praying for the specific intentions of:

  1. The reinstatement of public Mass in the Archdiocese of New York.
  2. A deepened desire by our archdiocesan leaders to prioritize spiritual health over physical health
  3. Cardinal Dolan to experience a flood of even greater devotion to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


Let us devote ourselves to a period of intense daily fasting.

Consider a food fast, with an addition of something else like cold showers, the "heroic minute", fasting from TV, etc. 


Write, sign, and send a letter to Cardinal Dolan begging him to reinstate public Mass in our diocese. 

We have provided a template letter as an example, so that we can campaign for the sacraments out of love. Feel free to use this or similar language! If you choose to write your own letter, please use this guide so that your language reflects charity. 

To ensure that your letter reaches Cardinal Dolan's desk, and hopefully reads the entire thing, we recommend you do the following:

  • Address the letter to:
    • His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan
    • Archdiocese of New York
    • 1011 1st Avenue
    • New York, NY 10022
  • Write "CONFIDENTIAL" on the outside of the envelope in large red letters
  • Hand write the body of the letter if you are able to.
