There is an obligation for the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Mass.
The office will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
It pleases us to welcome hundreds of people to Holy Spirit Catholic Community everyweekend. Even more people come here to worship during the Christmas Holidays.Consequently, to avoid exceeding the maximum capacity of 1300 people, as requiredfor safety reasons by the Fire Department, we implemented the distribution ofattendance tickets.
For several years the 3:00pm Christmas Eve Mass had been our most attendedHoliday Mass. However, in the past two years, the number of people attending the 5:30PM Christmas Eve Mass has increased considerably. For this reason, we will nowdistribute attendance tickets for both Masses.
The health and safety of all who come to worship at Holy Spirit is our chief priority.Allowing more than the maximum number of people at any time can create problems incase of a fire or other emergency.
Please be informed that only 1300 attendance tickets will be issued for each Mass. Tickets will be individually assigned on a first come, first served basis.
If you and your family wish to attend the 3:00pm or the 5:30pm Christmas Eve Mass,this year, stop by the Gathering Place, after any of the weekend liturgies on December9 & 10, and register to obtain an attendance ticket for each member of your family.
Each family member, adults and children, registered to attend one of these twoChristmas Masses will need to bring their attendance ticket on Dec 24. Tickets will be collected at the entrance doors.
The use of tickets is intended to help maintain the health and safety of everyone inattendance by ensuring we do not exceed the maximum capacity.
We trust everyone understands the importance of these safety measures and we askfor your cooperation.
