On the Friday after Christmas – which is this year, the Octave of the Nativity, we’ll be attending 2:00 p.m. Holy Day Mass in Windsor and then gathering for dinner and Christmas caroling.
The picture above is from Assumption Grotto Parish, which parish can be found on Facebook, here. Please recommend the parish to your friends on the Eastside. The picture was taken at the Christmas Midnight Mass in 2010 (Te Deum laudamus) and has enjoyed popularity as a “Catholic Meme” in during a couple different Christmastides. Fr. Aidan Logan, a Cistercian of the Strict Observance and vocations director for the Archdiocese for Military Services, will return to Grotto as the celebrant at the Solemn High Midnight Mass, this Friday morning.
