St. Pat's mass for dead construction workers

Their names - typically shouted from a steel beam somewhere high along the skyline - will instead resonate gently inside St. Patrick's Cathedral.

A Mass honoring the 13 construction workers killed on the job since last April is set for Monday, when a roll call of the departed will echo through the Fifth Ave. landmark.

St. Patrick's Cathedral honors 13

Relatives of the dead were expected to fill the front rows of the church, with an estimated 3,000 construction workers - in their hardhats - entering the church in a pre-Mass procession of solidarity.

Some work sites will likely close for the day to accommodate those attending the memorial.
