You are invited to join us as we joyously celebrate the coming of the Lord. The liturgical season of Christmas begins with the vigil Masses on Christmas Eve and concludes on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. During this season, we celebrate the birth of Christ and reflect on the meaning of his gift of salvation. We hope you come to know the joy of the Gospel in an ever greater way during the Christmas season here at St. Francis de Sales. Below you will find our Christmas schedule and resources for the season.
