Catholics are obliged to attend Mass for the Fourth Sunday in Advent and to attend Mass for Christmas. You may receive Holy Communion twice if you attend Fourth Sunday of Advent Mass on Sunday morning and attend Christmas Mass Sunday evening. This is because they are different liturgies.
Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception will take place on

Note: The 9am Mass will be attended by Students form Saint Bridget School.
This Solemnity celebrates the Conception of Mary, Mother of Jesus and that in her conception she was free from the effects of Original Sin. It is often erroneously assumed that we are celebrating Mary's conception of Jesus, which is recognized on March 25th with the Feast of the Annunciation.
