Calendar Details for 08 Dec 2017

Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On December 8 each year we celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  A solemnity is the highest ranking feast day on our liturgical calendar, and this particular feast day is also a holy day of obligation.  And yet the Immaculate Conception might be the most misunderstood of all our feast days.  If you were to poll Catholics as to what we are celebrating on this feast day, most would respond that we are celebrating Mary’s conception of Jesus.  But this is incorrect!  We are actually celebrating the conception of Mary, herself, by her mother, Saint Anne. 

Mass Times for the Feast Day are Thursday, December 7, at 5:15pm, and Friday, December 8, at 7:00am, 11:30am, and 5:15pm.
