IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception in English is celebrated on Monday, December 9th this year because the Second Sunday of Advent takes priority. Since this feast has been transferred, it is not a Holy Day of Obligation. For the Latin Mass, this feast is celebrated on Sunday, December 8th.

The parish will have its annual Coat Drive for the Catholic Center of Concern through Sunday, December 8th. The collection point is at the rear of the Church by the stairs.
