Bambinelli Sunday
The 3rd Sunday of Advent is the weekend of December 16 – 17. Parishioners are invited to bring their Baby Jesus figurines to Mass for a special blessing.

Christmas Masses
Please note: Christmas falls on a Monday this year. This means that all are obligated to go to one Mass for the 4th Sunday of Advent and another Mass for the celebration of the Nativity of Lord (Christmas). Considering that the vigil Masses for the Nativity of the Lord are on Sunday evening, and that priests are permitted to celebrate only three Masses on a Sunday or Holy Day, we had to adjust the regular Sunday morning Mass schedule. So, please note well that there will only be two Masses offered for the 4th Sunday of Advent: Saturday, December 23 at 4:00 in Payne, and Sunday, December 24 at 9:30 a.m. in Paulding.

Christmas Eve Masses
Sunday, Dec 24 at 4:00 p.m. in Payne and 10:00 p.m. in Paulding.

Christmas Day Mass
