• Christmas Day on Monday, Dec. 25, is a Holy Day of Obligation. The faithful must attend two Masses between Dec 23-25: one for the Sunday obligation and one for the Christmas obligation. For instance, the Sunday obligation may be fulfilled by attending the Saturday Vigil Mass or a Sunday morning Mass; the Christmas obligation may be fulfilled by attending a Mass after 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve or a Christmas Day Mass.
