January 1 is the Solemnity of St. Mary Mother of God, patroness of our parish. It is a holy day of obligation. We will have Vigil Masses offered at 6:00pm (English) and 8:00pm (Spanish) on Dec. 31 in addition to a 10:00am Mass the morning of Jan. 1. What better way to bring in the new year than by celebrating the great gift of our Lord’s Blessed Mother to us. Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
