Bambinelli Sunday
Our parish will once again celebrate Bambinelli Sunday during all Masses on the weekend of December 14th and 15th. Pope John Paul II, during his papacy, instituted the celebration of Bambinelli Sunday on the Third Sunday of Adventóa day on which children from Rome bring to St. Peterís Square the figurine of the Christ Child from their familiesí Nativity sets. Then, following the Sunday Angelus address, the Holy Father blesses the statues of Baby Jesus which the children will take back to homes to be placed under their Christmas trees. Pope Francis continued the tradition, blessing the statuettes which children brought before him in the Square. Parishes around the world now join in the celebration, encouraging young children to make the connection between the Nativity set at home and the local church where they worship each weekend. So, join us and bring your Baby Jesus to church on the 14th/15th!
