The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
This is customarily celebrated on December 8th. This year, since the 8th is a Sunday, the Second Sunday of Advent takes precedence, and the observance of the Immaculate Conception is transferred to Monday, December 9th. The United States is dedicated to the patronage of Our Lady in her title “ Immaculate Conception.” .Masses will be celebrated at 6:30 AM, 10:00 AM and 7 PM. It is not a Holy Day of Obligation, but a day of opportunity to honor Mary.
