The community Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM, Fr. Joseph presiding and preaching. This Solemnity is the patronal feast of the United States. Because it falls in the Advent Season, the Second Vespers of the Second Sunday of Advent displaces the First Vespers of the Solemnity. Monday is a non-work day at the Abbey and we follow the Sunday schedule; Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament will follow the Vespers of the Solemnity (5:30 PM) on Monday.
