Christmas and New Year’s holiday Masses scheduled

After careful consideration, Mass times for the holidays have been set.

They are:

  • Christmas Eve: 4 p.m. and midnight.
  • Christmas Day: 8 and 10:30 a.m.
  • New Year’s Eve: 5:15 p.m.
  • New Year’s Day: 9 a.m.

We originally considered offering six Masses between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Our online survey, which attracted nearly 200 responses, indicated that extra services were not needed. It did highlight, however, the 4 p.m. Christmas Eve Mass would be the most attended. Please remember, we can safely accommodate 165 people at each Mass, so if you are not comfortable in a larger crowd, please consider coming to another Mass. In addition, the annual children’s pageant at the 4 p.m. will not take place this year.

Also, the pamphlet that you will be receiving in your next set of donation envelopes lists the original six Masses. Please ignore that list.

Of course, our safety protocols will be in effect at all holiday Masses — wearing masks, social distancing and signing in at the door.
