It would appear that midnight mass at St. Patrick's is conducted by Bishop Morlino. I'm sure most locals know that name, but if you don't, a quick internet search will turn up all sorts of things.
I know of two specific, unrelated instances where formerly faithful Catholics have switched denominations entirely because of his incendiary homilies. Examples: anti-abortion rants and, most recently, a blanket defense of all accused pedophile priests. From the pulpit. At a fucking confirmation mass. My friend's comment: "I'd never seen my (formerly die-hard Catholic) mother so furious. She was shaking with rage."
