Upcoming Events at St. Vincent's

It's hard to believe that the First Sunday of Advent is almost upon us!  As we begin our new liturgical year, and the season in which we await with anticipation the feast of our Savior's birth, we wanted to call to your attention a few upcoming events to help you in your spiritual preparations for Christmas.

Saturday, December 6: Morning of Recollection: Awaiting the Messiah with the Prophets

Monday, December 8: Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (Holy Day of Obligation)
Today we celebrate the Virgin Mary who, from the first moment of her conception, was preseved from any stain of original sin, a foreshadowing of the work of God's grace that would take place through her son, Jesus Christ.  We offer three Masses this day:
9:00 a.m. (English/Portuguese)
5:30 p.m. (Spanish)
7:10 p.m. (English)
Following the evening Mass, there will be a time of Eucharistic Adoration for all children who died before birth, and for a greater respect for life in all of its stages, until Midnight.

Friday, December 12: Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Spanish-speaking community will lead us in the singing of the MaƱanitas, the traditional songs sung at dawn in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We will follow with the Mass of the Feast and a light social in the lower church.
