2017-Advent - Christmas Schedule

Christmas 2017 Worship Notes

Christmas (a holy day of obligation) falls on a Sunday this year. so please take note of the following in chronological order.  It is necessary to attend TWO Masses in order to satisfy both the Sunday obligation and the Christmas holy day obligation.

  • Vigil Mass on Saturday, December 23 at 4:30 PM satisfies the Sunday obligation and does not satisfy the Christmas obligation.
  • Sunday Masses on December 24 at 8:00, 10:00, and 11:30 AM satisfy the Sunday obligation and do not satisfy the Christmas obligation.
  • Christmas Vigil Masses on Sunday, December 24 at 4:00 and 6:00 PM satisfy the Christmas obligation and do not satisfy the Sunday obligation.
  • For example, if one goes to Saturday, December 23 at 4:30 PM and the Sunday, December 24 Mass at 4:00 PM, then that person has satisfied the Sunday obligation and the Christmas holy day obligation.
  • For example, if one goes to the Sunday, December 24 Mass at 4:00 PM and to no other Mass on Sunday morning the 24th nor to a Vigil Mass on Saturday the 23rd, then that person has satisfied the Christmas obligation but not the Sunday obligation.
  • Since the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God on Monday, January 1, 2018 is not a holy day of obligation this coming year, we will still have regular 9 AM Mass in the Chapel.
