Alternative New Year's Celebration

So, tired of the jet set lifestyle that says you have to go out partying for New Year's Eve? Looking for something to do as a family, but not sure where to go? Feel like you want to start the New Year off right, but not sure how to do it?

Come on down to the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains for Adoration for Vocations, and Mass at Midnight, New Year's Day!

The Vocation Office is once again hosting a chance for the faithful to gather to pray before Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, in the run up to New Years. Following the 5:15 PM Mass on December 31, Christ will be present in the Monstrance for the faithful to gather in prayer. About 11:45 or so, we will have Benediction, and conclude the evening with Mass starting at Midnight, setting a tone for the entire year to be based in Christ.

Last year, we stayed in the Daily Chapel. I would love to have to move out to the Big Church, which would take at least 100 people.

Oh, and better yet, the seminarians will be serving the Mass. See you there!

Ok I'm in. Who else is coming?

But the big question is, what plans have you, Father, for after the holy hour? Hmmm?

And where might a visiting cleric from the far north stay that evening?

Now I have to see what Masses I'm scheduled for that next day...
