Simbang Gabi 2016

On December 15, the church bells will be ringing at 7:00 P.M. at our parish, Saint Lawrence the Martyr Parish, to mark the beginning of the novena Masses for Simbang Gabi or “night worship.” An annual tradition that reflects the deep roots of the religious culture of the Philippines, the “Simbang Gabi” is a time to hope, a time to pray, and a time to eagerly wait for the coming of our Messiah.  

The Filipino Catholic Community, formerly known as the Filipino Association, warmly invites everyone in our parish and school community to participate in their annual tradition of novena Masses, a celebration of family and community.              

Simbang Gabi Schedule:

                        December 15, 16, 19-23 at 7:00 P.M.

                        Saturday, December 17 at 5:00 P.M.

                       Sunday, December 18 at 6:00 P.M.

Bishop Patrick McGrath will be the presider on Saturday, December 17.  A simple reception will follow after the 5:00 P.M. Mass at the Community Center.

A potluck-reception will be held on December 23 after the 7:00 P.M. Mass, the last evening of the Simbang Gabi. Fun activities will surely be part of the culmination of this wonderful tradition at the Community Center.

Come, join, and experience this meaningful tradition of prayer, culture, fellowship, and family!  Sponsor a novena Mass on any of the Simbang Gabi dates.  Any amount that is offered is a gift that will surely help in defraying the cost of holding the Novena Masses and also support in the upkeep and maintenance of our parish facilities.  

Sign-up sheets will be available at the church entrance doors on December 2-3 and December 9-10 for those who would like to sponsor a Mass. For more details, please contact Mr. Romel Antonio (505)-847-4345, Ms. Therie Velasco- Gonzales (408)-340-0846, or any member of the Fil-Am community.
