Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

January 1st, 2018

Due to the unusual calendar this year, the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God remains a Holy Day but not a Holy Day of Obligation. Therefore there will be one mass at 8:30AM on January 1st.

The church celebrates that Mary is the Mother of God (Theotokos or more specifically “Bearer of God”). One of the most outstanding characteristics of Mary is her willingness to know and do God’s will. We seek to follow Mary’s example more closely so we can be bearers of Christ to the world in the modern world.
