Proper Planning needed to make it to Mass on the 24th and 25th: With Christmas being on a Monday this year, it will be important to properly plan your attendance for the 4th Sunday of Advent and then the Christmas Mass. Please note the schedule! Please share this information as it involves several changes.
4th Sunday of Advent Masses are Saturday, December 23, at 5:00 PM and Sunday, December 24, at 9:00 AM and 12:00 Noon. (There will be no 8:00 AM or 10:00 AM Mass this Sunday.)
Christmas Masses are Sunday, December 24, at 5:00 PM, 7:30 PM and Midnight. Then there is a Mass at 9:00 AM on Christmas day.
There are three (3) opportunities to make your Sunday obligation and four (4) to meet your Christmas day obligation. Please plan ahead to ensure that you and your family will meet both your Sunday and Christmas obligation to attend Mass. Seeing that this year January 1, Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, is not a holy day of obligation, there will be no change in the weekend schedule. However, on January 1 the only Mass celebrated will be the 7:00 PM Mass.
Confessions will be: Wednesday, December 13, from 6:00-9:00 PM (The Light Is On For You), and Saturday, December 23, from 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon.
Hark the Herald Angels Sing … who is this Herald guy? Let’s not be obtuse in our knowledge of the Angels. The Adult Ed Committee invites you to our next BCC (Becoming Confidently Catholic) session where the subject will be … angels. Please join us in the Lawrence Room at 6:30 PM on Saturday, December 16. Festive snacks will be provided; please bring the beverage of your choice.
