Monday, Dec. 7 at 5:30 p.m. (Vigil)
Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

This traditional Filipino Christmas Novena takes place Wednesday, Dec. 16 through Thursday, Dec. 24 with early morning Mass at 6:15 a.m. (except Sunday, Dec. 20) outside on the Holy Family Center patio. This year, there will not be a choir, as only piano and cantor are permitted, and there will not be food and refreshments served following Mass. All normal safety protocols will be followed.
CHRISTMASS MASS SCHEDULE
Due to cold and dark outdoor conditions, there will only be one Mass on Christmas Eve, Thursday, Dec. 24, held at 3:00 p.m. on the School South Campus Soccer Field. Please note: No chairs will be provided for this Mass. Please bring your own camp chairs, beach chairs, picnic blankets, etc. to sit on. Please also plan ahead for cool weather and be prepared with appropriate attire. Families of the same household may sit together but must maintain 6-feet social distance from everyone else in their vicinity. All normal safety protocols will be followed. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the outdoor conditions necessitate this change.
Christmas Day Masses will take place at 7:15, 9:00, and 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on the Holy Family Center Patio; chairs will be provided at these Masses as usual. There will be no evening Mass on Christmas Day.
