6pm – Vigil Mass of Christmas at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Gabalfa

24th December 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Welcome to the Vigil Mass of Christmas. Mass tonight is celebrated at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Gabalfa

The Vigil Mass of Christmas takes place on Christmas Eve and is full of the anticipation of the events which Christmas commemorates.

The liturgy offers St Matthew’s account of the ancestry of Jesus. This genealogy sets Jesus’ birth within the context of the history of Israel, highlighting two of Jesus’ ancestors—Abraham, the father of the Hebrew people, and David, the most important king of Israel. Jesus’ ancestral lineage reinforces a central theme of Matthew’s Gospel: Jesus is the fulfilment of the prophecies made to the people of Israel. We are here at Mass to celebrate that fulfilment.
