Simbang Gabi 2017


SIMBANG GABI. A beloved tradition by the Filipino faithful in preparation for the great feast of Christmas. It is an expression of our filial devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. For nine consecutive days (represents the nine months that Mary bore Jesus in her womb), we join and accompany her as she awaits the birth of her Son. For this reason, Masses are celebrated in her honor.


The Spirituality of Simbang Gabi (Advent evening masses) calls us to nurture the spirit of Advent not only as individual preparation, but to prepare as a community, a family of God united in worship and in prayer. We bring our families and friends to the Eucharist, joining the entire community in waiting, and being strengthened by God's Spirit in preparing for the birth of Jesus.

Our Parish will host on December 20, 2017 Wednesday at 7:00 PM.
