For many years past, the Filipino-American group has hosted Simbang Gabi (evening Mass). It dates back to Spanish colonial period when daily masses were said at dawn, starting on December 16 (Novena) to usher in the Christmas season. It has since evolved to accommodate the realities of the times.
Our parish community will celebrate this beloved tradition on Saturday, December 9 at 4:00 p.m. (vigil) with Fr. Tri and the Filipino choir of St. John the Evangelist of Streamwood. Reception and holiday cheer to follow in Marvin Hall.
O Come, All Ye Faithful
