Does Midnight Mass cover Christmas Day Mass Obligation?

I know you can attend a vigil Mass on Friday December 24th, to meet your requirement for Mass, but does Midnight Mass cover the Christmas Holy Day of Obligation as well? Thanks.

Dear d,

Yes, Midnight Mass is a Christmas Mass and covers your obligation to attend Mass on Christmas.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
