High Mass on the Feast of the Circumcision of the Lord

The Solemnity of the Feast of the Circumcision is a Holy Day of Obligation - please join us on Tuesday, January 1st. for High Mass at Queen of Heaven Cemetery Chapel at 10:30 am.

The Feast of the Circumcision was instituted in honor of our Lord's receiving, on the eighth day after His birth, the mark of God's covenant with Abraham.

And at the end of eight days, when He was circumcised, He was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb (Luke 2:21)
