Bambinelli Sunday – 11/12th December 2016
Sunday, November 27th 2016

cns4burrows-1000For the past several decades, each year on Gaudete Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent, children (and adults) bring their Baby Jesus figures from the crib in their homes to St. Peter’s Square where the Pope will bless both the people and the figurines during the Angelus.

This year we will celebrate “Bambinelli Sunday” at all Masses in our parish on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December.  All are invited to bring the Baby Jesus figure from their homes to Mass that weekend to be blessed. 

Following the blessing, take your “bambinelli” home and place it in a gift box, wrap it, and save it for Christmas morning.  Let this be the first gift your family opens at Christmas, when together you place your Baby Jesus figure in the crib.  The parish will publish a special blessing in the bulletin in the coming weeks for families to pray together on Christmas morning.
