Where I live, there’s not a lot of appreciation for tradition, so we don’t have a “Midnight Mass” anywhere near. Because of that, I always thought that if I went to a Christmas Vigil Mass, I would be fulfilling my obligation. But after going to the Christmas Eve’s Mass this year, I discovered that it didn’t fulfill the Christmas Holy Day of Obligation!!
(An important factor is that I’m still underage) So on Christmas day, I told my dad that we needed to go to Mass again, and he told me that he didn’t care and that we already went to the Vigil Mass.
I still tried to contact a Parish near us, but they weren’t open. The day went by and I didn’t go.
I feel like I could have done more to try to Fulfill my obligation. Maybe I could’ve contacted other parishes, or maybe I should’ve asked my aunt if she could come with me. But I didn’t…
Do you think it is a sin that I need to confess?
