Christmas Day Holy Day of Obligation

With Christmas falling on Monday 25 December, the Vigil Mass on 24 December for Christmas cannot suffice for the Sunday obligation ie one Mass for two obligations. What can happen is as follows:

  • Attend Mass on Vigil 23 December or in the morning 24 December and attend Christmas Vigil 24 December or Christmas Day 25 December
  • Attend Christmas Vigil 24 December (which will fulfil Sunday) and attend Mass on Christmas Day 25 December.
