There have been questions about Mass for the Immaculate Conception … December 8 falls on a Sunday this year … here is the ‘official explanation’ from the Office of Worship:
“The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Because it falls on Sunday in which case the Sunday of Advent takes precedence, the Solemnity is transferred this year to Monday December 9. Because of the transfer, December 9 is not a Holy Day of Obligation this year. This is the only situation in which December 8 does not retain the obligation to attend Mass.”
Saint Mary’s School Weekly Mass will be on Wednesday, December 11th following our usual School Mass Schedule.
