Church on Christmas?


Just curious, is it required to go to mass on Christmas Eve and Christmas, or just Christmas? And is Christmas night okay or only Christmas morning?


Christmas is a holy day of obligation. You must attend either on Christmas day or the evening before. I don’t think parishes usually have Masses on Christmas night.


just like every Sunday and Holy Day, evening before or the day itself, anytime, and once is enough. same question, same answer
