From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On Advent: When the Church celebrates the liturgy of Advent each year, she makes present this ancient expectancy of the Messiah, for by sharing in the long preparation for the Savior’s first coming, the faithful renew their ardent desire for his second coming. By celebrating the precursor’s birth and martyrdom, the Church unites herself to his desire: “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

- CCC 524


This Week: Third Week of Advent

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.

Christmas Mass Schedule

Wednesday, Christmas Eve

Thursday, Christmas Day

Note that there is no evening Mass on Christmas Day. Christmas is a Holy Day of Obligation.

Also don’t forget that Our Lord asks that we honor His Mother with Mass on New Year’s Eve at 5:30 pm or New Year’s Day at 9:00 am. This is the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, and is also a Holy Day of Obligation.

Also note that there is another alternative, which for many people is cheaper and better, and does not require us to subsidize abortion, sex-change operations, sterilizations, etc. Christian Healthcare Coops abide by Biblical principles and do fulfill the federal requirement to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act:
