Simbang Gabi, or Night Mass, is a Filipino Advent tradition of celebrating a series of novena masses over 9 days in anticipation of Christmas. This tradition was introduced by the Spanish friars to allow the farmers to hear mass before going to the fields early in the morning. Simbang Gabi is also known by its popular Spanish name as the Misa de Gallo, or "Mass of the Rooster.'' In the Philippines, parols are hung as early as September, signaling the coming of the season, and remain until the Feast of the Epiphany. 

Holy Infant will host one night of Simbang Gabi on Tuesday, December 19 at 7 PM. All parishioners and members of the public are invited to attend. A fundraiser dinner for our Filipino community's Altar Sponsorship Campaign will follow Mass with traditional Filipino food (pancit (noodles), lumpia(spring rolls), Chicken adobo-stew) served for $8 a plate. Filipino pastry mini trays and limited quantity of native Christmas ornaments will also be available for sale.
