CHRISTMAS AT

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish

As Christmas Day falls on a Monday and both Christmas Day and Sunday are Holy Days of obligation, going to Christmas Eve Mass on the Sunday does not fulfil the Sunday obligation AND the Christmas Day obligation. Hence the alteration in times and locations in order that we may pace ourselves as we all need to go twice (spare a thought for your poor priest who has to celebrate all 5 Masses in two days!)  

Hopefully we will all see this, not as a challenge, but a cause for great thanksgiving that Jesus will be with each of us in a particular way on these two days, giving us many graces and blessings, and strengthening us with his light and warmth, during the cold, dark winter months.  

Mass in our parish will be celebrated at the following times this year:
