Christmas 2021

Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help! We’re so glad you’re planning to join us for Christmas. Please find details below about our Christmas liturgies.

Mass Times

  • Christmas Eve at 4 pm (Church and School Gym), 7 pm (Church), and 10 pm (Church)
  • Christmas Day at 9:00 am (Church) 

Christmas Mass Details

  • The 4 pm Mass in the Church will feature the children’s choir. 
  • The 7 pm Christmas Eve Mass will also be live streamed to our Youtube Channel for those who are sick or in quarantine.
  • The 4 pm Christmas Eve Mass will definitely be our most crowded (by far). Please take this into consideration when making your Christmas plans. 
  • The Life Center will be open and available for overflow seating for all Masses. Mass will be broadcast from the Nave to the large screen at the front of the Life Center.

Doors Open

The doors will open at 3 pm for the 4 pm Christmas Eve Mass, and at that time parishioners and other Mass attendees will be able to enter and find a spot to sit for themselves and their families. 

Incense

Incense will be used at all Masses in the Nave. If you are allergic or highly sensitive to incense, we suggest that you sit in the Life Center.

Coronavirus Precautions

While masks are not required, we do encourage everyone over the age of 2 to consider wearing one. We do not have any social distancing measures in place at this time.

While there is no longer a general dispensation for the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days, if you are sick with any illness, awaiting COVID test results, in quarantine from COVID contact, or caring for a family member with any illness, you are not obligated to attend Mass, and we ask you to please stay home.

Confessions

If you are looking to go to Confession before attending Christmas liturgies, check out our opportunities below!

  • Monday – Saturday after 8:30 am Daily Mass
