Two Mass Obligations on

Because Christmas falls on Monday this year, we have 2 Mass obligations to fulfill ... the first, for the 4th Sunday of Advent which is Saturday evening - December 23 at 4 PM or Sunday morning - December 24 at 8 AM, 9:30 AM, or 11:30 AM.
The Christmas obligation is fulfilled by participating at one of the Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Masses: Christmas Eve at 4 PM, 5:30 PM or 10 PM; Christmas Day at 8 AM, 9:30 AM, and 11 AM.
Please note: on Christmas Day itself, our LAST MASS for Christmas is 11 AM, not 11:30 AM!
