Advent Novena Masses

Resurrection and St. Cyprian Parishes will be celebrating a Novena of Advent Masses in a joint effort from Thursday, December 15th, through Friday, December 23rd.  The novena (known in the Philippines as a tradition called  “Simbang Gabi”) is a series of Masses celebrated on nine consecutive nights to help in our spiritual preparation for Christmas – a time when we are invited to welcome Christ more fully into our lives.

The novena of Masses has been scheduled as a joint effort of Resurrection and St. Cyprian parishes with 6 of the Masses taking place here at Resurrection and 3 of the Masses taking place at St. Cyprian’s.  (The weekend Masses during the novena will take place at our normal Saturday and Sunday afternoon Masses.)  The times and places of the Masses are as follows:

Thursday, 12/15    7:00 pm at Resurrection
Friday, 12/16    6:15 pm at St. Cyprian’s
Saturday, 12/17    5:00 pm at Resurrection
Sunday, 12/18    5:30 pm at Resurrection
Monday, 12/19    7:00 pm at Resurrection
Tuesday, 12/20    6:15 pm at St. Cyprian’s
Wednesday, 12/21    7:00 pm at Resurrection
Thursday, 12/22    6:15 pm at St. Cyprian’s
Friday, 12/23    7:00 pm at Resurrection
