Deo Gratias Service

Spend the last hour of 2023 in peace, thanking God for his graces and praying for the coming year.

Join us on December 31st for an hour of prayer with the singing of the 'Te Deum' as we ring in the New Year. A Latin High Mass follows at midnight.

During the 'Deo Gratias' service, the names of those who were married, baptized, or buried at the parish are read as we thank God for the year and ask graces for the New Year.

This Eucharistic Holy Hour of thanksgiving includes the chanting of Matins and the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. At the conclusion of the Holy Hour, we chant the solemn “Te Deum,” the church’s Hymn of Thanksgiving, for which we can receive a plenary indulgence.

The “Deo Gratias” Service is followed by a Latin High Mass for the Feast of the Circumcision of our Lord, which is also the Octave Day of Christmas. The Mass begins at 12 Midnight.

10:30 pm - Confessions begin

11:00 pm - Holy Hour with sung "Te Deum"
