BAMBINELLI SUNDAY BLESSING
December 10 & 11 at all Masses
In Italy, Gaudete Sunday is Bambinelli Sunday. Originally, Italian children would bring a figure of the Christ child or one from the family’s crèche to St. Peter’s Square where it would be blessed by the pope. Revived by Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Francis has continued the tradition, and we want to celebrate this tradition at St. Hilary Parish this Advent!
We invite you to bring baby Jesus from your family’s crèche on the weekend of December 10 and 11 for a special blessing at all Masses!
