Solemn Midnight Mass & Devotions on New Years Eve

The only traditional observance of the the Octave Day/Feast of the Circumcism in the state of Georgia will take place this weekend at St Francis de Dales in the Atlanta Archdiocese. Make plans to assist at the midnight mass on January 1st 2012 for the Octave Day of Christmas, (Feast of the Cicumcism) at St Francis de Sales Mableton. Holy Hour and confessions start on Saturday night at 11:00 pm. Solemn High Mass starts at Midnite. Before midnite the Te Deum will be sung and after midnite the Veni Creator will be sung. You will be able to obtain 2 plenary indulgences this evening.A plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful under the usual conditions who devoutly assist at the singing or recition of:The Te Deum on the last day of the year to give thanks to God for benefits received during the past year. Another plenary indulgence is granted under the usual conditions to the faithful who devoutly assist at the singing or recition of: The Veni Creator on 1 January to implore divine help during the coming year. Since there is mass, communion and confessions all going on at the same time, this is a rare opportunity to gain 2 plenary indulgences on one visit to church.
