The Profession of Faith at Yankee Stadium in Latin as well as the Magnificat, Pater Noster and Regina Caeli at Evening Prayer with the U.S. Catholic Bishops.

The very first hymn by a choir is Tu Es Petrus, the anthem for the Holy Father.

The majority of the various services are in English as is here at St. Charles Borromeo parish.
