December 24: We will hold a Christmas Vigil Holy Mass at 4pm on Christmas Eve.
December 25: The Solemn Shepherdsâ€™ Holy Mass of Christmas begins at midnight. During one of the yearâ€™s longest nights, we will break forth with light, song, and pronouncement to celebrate Jesusâ€™ birth. The nightâ€™s liturgy begins with one of our parishâ€™s women carrying the baby Jesus to the manger. Then the manger is blessed and the Christmas proclamation is made. The Solemn Holy Mass of the Nativity follows with beautiful traditional music of the season.
December 25: For those who prefer, the Holy Mass on Christmas Day will be celebrated at 10am.
Whichever Holy Mass you choose, itâ€™s important that we not forget the reason for the celebration. Come to Jesusâ€™ house on His birthday (and bring family and friends) for these beautiful liturgies.
