Misa de Gallo - The Mass of the Rooster begins Friday, December 16
Our nine-day Advent novena, the Misa de Gallo goes into its twenty-fourth year in our parish. This novena is celebrated with a very early morning Mass at 5:30 AM each day during the nine days before Christmas. It will start on December 16 and end on Christmas Eve, December 24.
Celebrating Mass daily during the nine days before Christmas is a wonderful spiritual preparation for the Christmas season. After Mass, enjoy the daily hospitality of Filipino food and delicacies, a festive reminder of the roots of this Christmas novena. Please join us, even for just a day or two.

Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide. In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now. If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.
