Novena to the Birth of Christ

date: 14.12.2015.

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, Novena to the Birth of Christ will begin in Medjugorje. For nine days, the parish will pray the Rosary on Apparition Hill every day at 2 pm. This coming Friday, we will not pray the Way of the Cross on Cross Mountain, but Rosary on Apparition Hill. The evening prayer programme begins at 5 pm with Rosary and Holy Mass at 6 pm, followed by the rest of the prayer programme. Early Holy Masses are celebrated at 6 am every day but Sundays. The area around the church of St. James is also decorated, with the members of Cenacolo community who are constructing Betlehem scenery and are preparing the set for the live nativity scene that will be held in the days prior to Christmas. All parishioners are invited to participate in this Novena, so we would all be prepared for the celebration of the birth of Christ. (photos)
