The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mass Times
The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated on Monday, December 9. Mass times at the Basilica of Saint Mary are 6:30 am, 8:00 am, 12:10 pm and 5:00 pm.
It is traditionally celebrated on December 8, but it has been transferred to December 9 this year since December 8 is a Sunday and the Second Sunday of Advent takes precedence on the liturgical calendar. While normally a Holy Day of Obligation, the obligation is dispensed this year because of this transfer.
