The greatest solemnities (principal days in the calendar) are so great and joyful that one day is not enough to complete the celebration. At Easter and Christmas, we repeat the celebration for eight consecutive days in what is called an octave. The Christmas Octave ends in another solemnity that echoes the Nativity of the Lord.

*Online pre-reservation for the first three Christmas Eve Masses is necessary. Capacity is limited to 200 persons. The church proper can accommodate 140 persons and overflow is available in the parish centre auditorium for another 60 persons. Entry may not be granted without a reservation. Please reserve your spot beforehand and arrive at least 15 minutes early.
