All community members are invited to join in celebrating the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception with Mass on Friday, Dec. 7, at 4 p.m. in the Saint Thomas More Chapel. This special day celebrates our history and tradition as a community guided by our patroness Mary, the mother of God. The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is also a Holy Day of Obligation, reminding us this day is an extraordinary day in the church calendar giving special attention to one of the most important events in salvation history. This Vigil Mass, celebrated by Father Burns, will fulfill the obligation for Saturday, Dec. 8. A social will be offered in the atrium of the Science and Learning Center after Mass.
