Nativity of the Lord (Christmas): Mass at Dawn (Dec 25, 2022)

The shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place which the Lord has made known to us.” From this early morning liturgy, let us return home and share with our loved ones the Good News that Jesus Christ is born!
