We welcome all of you to join this Simbang Gabi for the Filipino American Community of Northern Virginia, as well as the Diocese of Richmond, Archdiocese of Washington, Archdiocese of Baltimore, and other areas.  Many archdioceses and dioceses celebrate Simbang Gabi, a Filipino tradition of Novena Masses (nine consecutive days) celebrated in parishes across the country leading up to Christmas. It is “a privileged votive mass, i.e., a mass that does not correspond to the liturgical calendar but has a special intention” said Philippines Church historian Fr. Rex Andrew Alarcon. Watch the Archdiocese of Washington’s video explaining what Simbang Gabi is and check back for a list of Simbang Gabi celebrations from various arch/dioceses.  — from the USCCB site.
