Simbang Gabi is a nine day Catholic Novena practiced in the Philippines each year before Christmas. On the last day, a morning Mass called the Misa de Gallo is celebrated in a tradition that dates back to Mexico in 1587. It is one of the Filipinos most treasured Christmas traditions.
We invite everyone to the Simbang Gabi Mass and celebrations on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 10:30am at Prince of Peace Catholic Community. The Philippine fiesta meal featuring Filipino food with refreshments will be served in the Community Room after the 9 and the 10:30am Masses.
