Christmas: December 25, 2017

After finishing finals and spending two days to prepare for Christmas, priests and seminarians met in the chapel in the evening on Christmas Eve to pray Matins, which included beautiful chants and lessons that help prepare for the great feast day. Matins ended in time for the Christmas Midnight Mass, which OLGS Rector Fr. Bisig celebrated. Mass was followed by some Christmas carols as Fr. Bisig blessed the Infant Christ statue and placed it in the Nativity scene. Christmas festivities continued the next day with the celebration of the Dawn and Day Masses, a big dinner in the middle of the day, and Solemn Christmas Vespers in the evening. The next day, seminarians were able to go home for their Christmas break to take a rest before the start of the spring semester.

We would like to wish you all a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
