Christmas Weekend Masses

December 2017

You may be wondering if going to Mass on Christmas Eve counts twice this year since it falls on a Sunday. Short answer, it does not!

The U.S. Bishop’s Committee on Divine Worship has said the faithful should attend two Masses once for the 4th Sunday of Advent and once for Christmas.

This means that the Sunday obligation for Dec. 24 can be fulfilled on Sunday, or anytime after 4 p.m. on Dec. 23, and the Christmas Mass obligation can be fulfilled on Monday, or anytime after 4 p.m. on Dec. 24.
