Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception:  Since Dec, 8 is the Second Sunday of Advent, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is transferred to Monday, December 9. The obligation to attend Mass, however, does not transfer.  Mass will be celebrated at St. Thomas Aquinas on Monday, December 9 at 5:15pm.  While not a holy day of obligation, certainly a holy day of opportunity!  Our Lady, under her title of the Immaculate Conception, is the patroness of the United States.  Mary, pray for us!
