This year, Christmas falls on a Monday, which means that Christmas Eve masses will begin on a Sunday evening. The morning Masses on Sunday the 24th will be for the 4th Sunday in Advent, not for Christmas! The Archdiocese has given clarification on how that will work with the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, as it will not be possible to do a “2-for-1” covering both the Sunday and Christmas obligations at the same time. Sorry! A person has a few options:
1) Attend the anticipatory mass on Saturday evening, as well as Mass on Sunday evening (Christmas Eve) or Monday (Christmas day). 
2) Attend Sunday morning Mass, as well as Mass on Sunday evening (Christmas Eve) or Monday (Christmas day). Yes, you’re allowed to go twice in the same day! 
3) Attend Christmas Eve Mass on Sunday evening (which, in this case meets the Sunday obligation), as well as Mass on Monday (Christmas day). 
4) Or if you really want to go crazy, you could attend 2 Christmas Eve Masses on Sunday evening! One would cover the Sunday obligation, and the other would cover the Christmas obligation. Yes, you can go to Mass twice in the same day. 
  • Since Christmas falls on a Monday this year, Catholics have an obligation to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist twice on the weekend of December 23-25. You may satisfy your obligation in one of the following ways:
        -Saturday evening Mass and Christmas Eve Mass
        -Saturday evening Mass and Christmas Day Mass
        -Sunday morning Mass and Christmas Eve Mass
        -Sunday morning Mass and Christmas Day Mass
        -Christmas Eve Mass and Christmas Day Mass
    The Sunday obligation is fulfilled by participating in a Mass celebrated on either Saturday evening or any time on Sunday. (It does not require that Mass be for the 4th Sunday of Advent, though that is certainly preferable.) The Christmas obligation is fulfilled by participating in a Mass celebrated on either the evening of December 24 (after 4 p.m.) or on the morning of December 25. The discipline of the Church does not allow Catholics to satisfy both obligations with just one Mass, so please plan accordingly.

The First Sunday of Advent (12/2/2023) 

An Act of Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
