Christmas Eve Mass–Sunday, December 24, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.–NO SUNDAY MORNING MASS!
Caroling begins at 4:15 p. m. –come early!
Advent is winding down very quickly this week as the 4th Week of Advent is less than 24 hours being that this Sunday, the 4th Sunday of Advent falls on Christmas Eve Day. Given that, WE WILL NOT MEET ON SUNDAY MORNING FOR MASS, but move ahead on Sunday evening at 4:30 p.m. with our Christmas liturgy.
But lest we totally miss the richness of the 4th Sunday of Advent; I will include those readings here if you would like to reflect on them during the week.
Readings–4th Sunday of Advent
- 2 Samuel 7: 1-5, 8-11, 16
- Romans 16: 25-27
- Luke 1: 26-38
As you will see, the above readings remind us of how our God has worked in Salvation History through the likes of Nathan, David and Mary of Nazareth.
The readings for Christmas are well-known to us as they are the “song of our hearts” at this time of year–we have been a people walking, at times, “in the darkness” and our “light” has come!
Come; be with us on Sunday evening to celebrate our God’s over-the-top love for us in sending Jesus!
Christmas blessings of peace, joy and love,
Readings for Christmas Eve:
- Isaiah 9: 2-7
- Titus 2: 11-14
- Luke 2: 1-14
