(This is the only Mass for this Solemnity as it is not

a Holy Day of Obligation this year)

This comes from the USCC/Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship

The Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord (Dec. 25—Christmas)

is always a Holy Day of Obligation.

  • ·The Vigil Masses for the Nativity of the Lord are held the Evening of Dec. 24

  • ·The Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord is all day, from its vigil on the 24th until midnight the 25th.

  • ·Sun. Dec. 26 is the Feast of the Holy Family - we are not able to have a Saturday night vigil for this Feast because the Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord outranks the Feast of the Holy Family. This means there will be no Mass at Edenville on Sat. Dec. 25th at 5:00pm.

Introducing the OLOG Prayer Wall - We now have a digital "prayer wall" that will allow all our parishioners to share their prayer requests and interact with the community. This simple design makes sharing prayer requests and offering to pray for each other easy. Simply click the link to access the prayer wall. Type in your prayer request and hit submit. It's that simple. As you scroll through the list of prayers, you can click the prayer hands to show that you are praying for each request.

Pope Francis' prayer to Our Blessed Mother

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
