Categories No Categories
The Los Angeles Pastoral Region of the Filipino Ministry of the Los Angeles Archdiocese will once again host the Annual Simbang Gabi Advent mass Dec. 15, 2016 at 6:30PM. It is the 14th anniversary of the liturgical celebration of the Philippine tradition of culture, faith, and preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ. Our theme this year is “Jesus, make us generous dispensers of your Divine Mercy, translated in Tagalog, Hesus, gawin mo kaming masaganang daluyanng Iyong Banal na Awa”.
We consider our celebration a rich cultural heritage as well as a service to the Filipino American community. The beginning of the 9 day novena before Christmas strengthens our family relationship and bring God’s presence to unity and peace.
Ministers from parishes of the pastoral regions of Santa Barbara, San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel, San Pedro and Los Angeles will be present. Dignitaries, civic, business and non-profit organizations will march
with their banners and parols (lanterns}, a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem.
The main celebrant is His Excellency, Most Rev. Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, D. D with Bishops and Priests of the Archdiocese as concelebrants. Expected attendance is 3000.
