Midnight Mass

Does your church have midnight mass? For years this was one of the most precious of Catholic rituals. Now it seems to have gone by the wayside.

For the past two years my parish has moved the midnight service to 10PM (carols at 9PM).

Why you ask? Because the choir needs to get up for 10AM mass the next day!

Guess what? Midnight mass isn't about the choir--it's about the one guy who showed up in church for the first time all year--maybe all decade. It's a moment of evangelization for us and while I love my parish I think they are making a huge mistake.

What does your church do?
