Mass obligations for Christmas weekend 2017

Jim Wogan News Leave a Comment

With regard to Masses of obligation this Christmas season, the Office of the Chancellor reminds us that Sunday, Dec. 24, the 4th Sunday of Advent; and Monday, Dec. 25, Christmas, are two major solemnities that merit two distinct obligations to attend Mass. There may be a number of ways to fulfill these two obligations. The following schedule is meant as an illustration of what might be possible, depending on the Masses offered by your parish:

  • Attend a Saturday evening Mass (Sunday obligation) and a Sunday evening Mass (Christmas obligation)
  • Attend a Saturday evening Mass (Sunday obligation) and a Monday Mass (Christmas obligation)
  • Attend a Sunday Mass (Sunday obligation) and a Sunday evening Mass (Christmas obligation)
  • Attend a Sunday Mass (Sunday obligation) and a Monday Mass (Christmas obligation)

Any further questions regarding the schedule of Masses at your parish would be best answered by referring to your parish bulletin or calling your parish office.
