Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
Friday, 8 December is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Our Blessed Lady. There will be Mass at 12.10pm and a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 6pm. There will be a Novena of Preparation from Wednesday, 29 November after the 12.10pm Mass from Monday to Saturday and at Benediction on Sunday.For those who cannot make it to church there is a good novena prayer on the EWTN website. There is, of course no obligation to abstain from eating meat on Fridays which are also solemnities! The picture is the Immaculate Conception by Rubens.
