Vatican and Bethlehem Prepare for Christmas

larger font

As we prepare to commemorate the birth of Jesus, parishes throughout the world are making final preparations for the celebration of Holy Mass on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. That is the case in Vatican City as well as in the Holy Land, where Catholic pilgrims gather each year to celebrate the birth of Our Savior. Catholic News Service is providing stories on the Holy Father’s Christmas preparations as well as Mass and prayer vigils in Bethlehem at the site of the Nativity. These video stories and other news features as well as written stories are available here or from the CNS Video link on the Diocesan home page.
