December 15/16th – 3rd Sunday of Advent, The Bambinelli Blessing

THE BAMBINELLI BLESSING

On the 3rd Sunday of Advent, December 15/16th, at all 3 Masses, we invite you:

Bring your own figurines of the Christ Child from your Crèche or Nativity Scenes at home  that weekend, for a special blessing of them at the end of Mass.  This tradition is a custom in Rome, where the Holy Father blesses the figurines of the Baby Jesus for the people on Gaudete Sunday in St. Peter’s Square.
