Two special offerings of the Traditional Latin Mass will be celebrated on January 1 and 2 by Father Kevin Cusick at St. Francis de Sales Church, 7185 Benedict Avenue, Benedict, Maryland:
- Mass will be offered for the Octave of the Nativity of Our Lord (Circumcision) on Thursday evening, January 1, at 8:00 pm. The faithful are reminded that January 1 is a Holy Day of Obligation, on which all Catholics are required to attend Mass unless lawfully impeded.
- A First Friday Mass will be offered at 7:00 pm on January 2. There will be Eucharistic Adoration immediately after Mass, followed by light refreshments.
These Masses have been added to our seven-day schedule.
