(CNN) -- New York City's St. Patrick's Cathedral on Sunday will celebrate its first public Mass since March, when it stopped in-person attendance during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Catholic Archbishop of New York, will celebrate the Mass at 10:15 a.m. at the cathedral in Manhattan.

Attendance on Sunday, and until further notice, will be limited to 25% of capacity, the Archdiocese of New York said.

Mass is celebrated every day at the cathedral, and has been livestreamed both during and before the pandemic. Those livestreams will continue, the archdiocese said.

The cathedral has been open since June 1 for people wanting to pray inside during certain hours outside of Mass.
