Our church is not having a midnight mass. It is at 10:30 pm on Christams Eve instead. With Christmas being a Holy Day does going to the 10:30 mass count for Christams Day?

  • It will probably end around midnight don't fret about it.

  • Yes, I believe so. We have 4 different Christmas Eve Masses that are all anticipatory Masses.

  • I am sure it does - but really when you think of it (and I am Catholic) being in the Church makes it no more of you being a Catholic as being in a garage makes you a mechanic... Meaning; it is in your heart where it matters and God knows that.

  • I am sure it does. Going to 5 pm Mass on Saturday counts for Sunday.

  • Yes-

  • Yes it does counts and you might still be there at midnight, my church has a 4:30, and 7pm mass on Saturday.

  • I think it counts. I agree with gambilldl - it's what's in your heart that matters most to God.

  • Yes, the Christmas vigil mass "counts" for the next day.

    Answer by 1smartcookie at 2:24 PM on Dec. 20, 2010

  • If 5:30pm Mass on Saturday counts for Sunday obligation, then 10:30pm Mass should as well.
