The Immaculate Conception

virgin-mary

Saturday December 8 is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, one of our most important Holy Days of Obligation.  Please join us in celebrating the Mother of Our Lord at one of the following Mass times:

Friday, December 7, 9:00 pm (Chapel, Latin)

Saturday, December 8, 9:30 am (Chapel, English)

 

Sunday Masses will be offered at the usual times.

Please note!  A person cannot satisfy the obligation to attend both the Holy Day Mass and the Sunday Mass by attending only once (i.e. on Saturday Evening).  We are called to celebrate both the Immaculate Conception (on Friday Evening or Saturday) and our Lord’s Resurrection (on Saturday Evening or Sunday).  Here is the explanation from our Bishops:
