Oh happy fault!
After consulting with the Diocesan Office of Liturgy we found out that we are indeed permitted to celebrate today the Feast Day of our parish patron, St. John even though the rest of the world will be celebrating the Solemnity of the Holy Family and/or the Sunday in the Octave of Christmas.
However we still cannot host a social gathering for more than ten people and thus will not be able to have our customary rectory Open House in honor of the Beloved Apostle. You are still on your own toasting the love of Saint John.
Let’s be sure not to forget the Holy Family in Bethlehem in the midst of everything.
O Lord Jesus Christ, who when Thou wast subject to Mary and Joseph didst sanctify the home life with ineffable virtues: grant that by their assistance, we may be instructed by the example of Thy Holy Family and become partakers of their eternal happiness.
