Christmas Mass Times
Please find below all the Masses that are being celebrated at Saint Charles on the great feast of the Nativity of Our Lord. Carols will be sung at each of them with the organist and choir leading the accompaniment.
It is interesting to note that all the Masses of Christmas are actually slightly different in content. The scriptural passages and accompanying prayers at each Mass progress through the narrative of Christmas and so, if a person was inclined to go to all of the Masses, they would get the gradual unfolding of the proceedings of the night of the Lord’s birth.
