There are a number of special days next month,                if you are able to take one of the open slots
besides Christmas. You may note in the missal that            between 2:00 AM to 5:00 AM.
there are various degrees of celebrations;
Solemnities, Feasts, Memorials and Optional                   Vivat Jesus
Memorials. On December 8 we celebrate the
Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, honoring
Mary as Patroness of our country. On December 9
we celebrate a Solemnity which is not noted in the
missal because it is celebrated only at Holy Spirit; it
is the anniversary of the dedication of our church.
Finally on December 12 we celebrate the feast of                    Golfers, Golfers, Golfers!!
Our Lady of Guadalupe, honoring Mary as Patroness
of our diocese and as Patroness of the Americas.                   Get a Grip and Let ‘er Rip!
