St. Bede’s to celebrate Simbang Gabi

leave a comment »

Saint Bede the Venerable Catholic Church’s Filipino American community presents its annual Simbang Gabi celebration at 7 p.m. Dec. 16 in the church.

The celebration highlights the rich spiritual and cultural experience of the Filipino people as they prepare for the coming of the Lord on Christmas Day.
Simbang Gabi is a series of nine dawn Masses that culminate on Christmas Eve.

During Simbang Gabi, Catholic churches will open their doors before the break of dawn (usually by 4 in the morning) to welcome the faithful to the Simbang Gabi Mass.

St. Bede’s is at 215 Foothill Blvd. in La Canada.
