December 16-24, 2017
Join us for Simbang Gabi!
Simbang Gabi, which translates into “Mass of the Night”, is a devotional nine day novena of Masses in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary to usher the birth of Christ. This tradition was brought to the Philippines by the Spanish friars over 300 years ago and the St. Joan of Arc Filipino community began to carry on this tradition in 2008.
The Novena Masses start on December 16 and culminates on December 24.
- Saturday, December 16 through Saturday December 23 at 7:00 PM
Fellowship with food and drinks follows every Novena mass in the Multipurpose Room,
- Sunday, December 24 at 7:30 AM.
Please NOTE: The Novena Mass on December 24 is the culmination of the Simbang Gabi novena and it is also the fourth Sunday of Advent. This year we have moved the time to 7:30 AM instead of 5:30 AM.
Fellowship with light refreshments will follow outside the church by the St Joan of Arc statue.
We hope to see you!
