Immaculate Conception3

 

To celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception on December 8, we shall have the following Masses: 6 AM, 7 PM and 8:15 PM.  This is a Holy Day of Obligation.

"The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin." (Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, 1854)

In 1854, Pope Pius IX's solemn declaration, "Ineffabilis Deus," clarified with finality the long-held belief of the Church that Mary was conceived free from original sin. The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is a time to celebrate the great joy of God’s gift to humanity in Mary, and to recognize with greater clarity, the truth that each and every human being has been created by God to fulfill a particular mission that he and only he can fulfill.

Advent Kumpisalang Bayan generic

 

Our Parish Advent Penitential Service with Individual Confessions (Kumpisalang Bayan) will be held on Tuesday, December 5, at 8 in the evening.  We invite you to go to sacramental Confession as a spiritual preparation for the coming Christmas. 

Christ the King Procession

 

The Solemn Procession in honor of Christ, King of the Universe, will be held on Saturday, November 25 after the 7 PM Mass.  The Solemnity of Christ the King draws to a close the current liturgical year. 

The Solemnity of Christ the King was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man's thinking and living and organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ's royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations.

The route will be Peach Street- Highland Street- Greenwood Street- Main Avenue- Complex- Church.  We invite everyone to this procession.
