When I was at the mast Liturgy meeting, it was brought to my attention that there will be a 7 pm and a 10 pm Mass on the 24th, but not a Midnight Mass.

I have been in parishes that have done away with midnight Mass.

I thought the Christmas Eve and Midnight Masses counted for the Holy Day of Obligation of Christmas.

I asked my priest today and he said only the Christmas Day Mass counted for the HDO.

I think ours is doing midnight mass this year. I always enjoyed going to midnight mass at my grandma's church as a child much more than the Christmas morning service. Last Christmas Eve, I believe they held a few different services.

How many of us have or have had) young children who aren't going to leave their presents for even 5 seconds, much less an hour? I can see this one not flying in my house.......
