Thursday, December 31st: Ring in the New Year right, as Christ in the City and St. Louis Bertrand Young Adults host the 2016 Young Adults New Year’s Eve Bash and Midnight Mass. Starting at 8:00pm on December 31st, the bash will be held in O’Brien Hall of the parish center (3rd floor). Food, drinks, and various activities will be available, but feel free to bring your own. Following the bash, at 11:45pm, we will head to the church for a candlelit Midnight Mass, celebrated by Fr. Joseph-Mary Hertzog, OP. The Te Deum will also be sung in thanksgiving for favors granted in 2015 before Mass, with the Veni Creator sung after Mass. Since the Mass will be on January 1, this will fulfill the obligation for the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. If you have any questions, please e-mail Trevor Mahoney (trevor[dot]mahoney[at]uwalumni[dot]com).
Some practical considerations: If you are arriving after 9pm, please park in the lot across from the Church (east side of 6th St) or the lot behind the priory (enter off of St Catherine’s). To enter the parish center, please use the door located closest to the church (north side of the parish center). The gates of the parking lot will be closed, and this will be the only way to get into the parish center (for security reasons). If you are only attending the Mass, the church doors will be unlocked by 11:45pm.
