Continue your preparations for Christmas by joining Mary, Mother of God Parish for the Filipino Advent tradition of Simbang Gabi!
In the Philippines, Simbang Gabi is a celebration consisting of a nine-day series of early morning Masses to prepare for the birth of Christ on Christmas Day. Filipino immigrants have proudly introduced this beautiful tradition to the Church in the United States, and we will be hosting two nights of Masses at our parish.
It is tradition to worship and meditate on the Holy Family: the mystery of the Incarnation; the loving appreciation for the role of Mary as the bearer of Jesus; and the fatherly love of Joseph for his family.
You can learn more about Simbang Gabi from this U.S. Catholic article.
