Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) at the Vigil Mass (Dec 24, 2022)


“For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.” The Gospel of Matthew’s carefully crafted genealogy of the Messiah is upended by divine intervention through the conception of the Son of God within Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit.
