An Invitation to ALL…
Join us for the Eucharistic celebration for Simbang Gabi
A Filipino Catholic tradition of nine Advent Masses celebrated nine evenings in a row at nine different churches!
Simbang Gabi (Filipino for “Night Mass”) is a devotional nine-day series of Masses practiced by Roman Catholics in the Philippines in anticipation of Christmas and to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary. Join us for the Filipino tradition of celebrating a novena of Advent Masses to heighten the preparation of the faithful for the birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ, and in honor of the Blessed Mother.
Mass will be celebrated with many traditions from the Philippines. There will be readings and music in both English and Tagalog.
