Gaudete Sunday – Lighting of the Basilica Christmas Tree and Advent Lessons and Carols
All are invited to join us for two events on the evening of Gaudete Sunday, December 15.
The lighting of the Basilica Christmas tree will be at 6:00 pm in the Basilica Courtyard. Hot chocolate and other refresehments will be served by our American Heritage Girls and Office of Religious Education.
Advent Lessons and Carols will begin at 7:00 pm in the Basilica. The event will feature our Schola Cantorum and Children’s Choir.
We will also continue the tradition of our “Bambinelli Sunday” blessing at all Masses, including the Vigil Mass on December 14. Bring the Baby Jesus from your Nativity set to be blessed during any of the Masses this weekend.
