After a regular weekend schedule for Dec 23-24, we kick off the Christmas celebrations as follows:
CHRISTMAS EVE, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 24:
2:00pm — simple Mass for the vulnerable, socially anxious and seniors (English)
4:00pm — Mass with children assisting in manger blessing (English)
6:00pm — Mass with children assisting in manger blessing (Spanish)
8:00pm — Spanish Mass
CHRISTMAS DAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 25:
9:00am — English Mass
11:00am — Spanish Mass
5:00pm — bilingual Mass , depending on the turnout
This year our Christmas celebrations will be preceded by a return of the “Blue Christmas Mass for Healing” on Friday, December 22 at 7pm. This bilingual Mass is for those who struggle to find joy or meaning in the Christmas times, both at church and in personal life. There will be an opportunity to receive the Sacrament of the Sick at this Mass, and the intercession of St. Sharbel will be invoked.
The season of Advent, which precedes the Christmas festivities, runs from December 3-24 in 2023.
