This weekend, December 10 & 11, Maria Regina celebrates Bambinelli Sunday. In Rome, at his 12:00 Angelus Prayer on December 11, Pope Francis will bless all the little statues of the baby Jesus brought from the family cresches throughout Rome. And so, we invite all our parishioners to bring your little baby Jesus to Mass this weekend. We will have a special blessing during which we will again remember the true meaning of the Feast of Christmas, soon to be celebrated! So don't forget- bring out those little Bambinellis this weekend!

The word Advent derives from the Latin word meaning 'coming.' The Lord is coming. During Advent we recall the history of God's people and reflect on how the prophecies and promises of the Old Testament were fulfilled. This gives us a background for the present. Advent marks the beginning of the Church Year, 2017. On Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, November 27, we celebrate the First Sunday of Advent. The Parish Advent Wreath is lit and blessed at all the Masses this weekend. Come celebrate the quiet mystery of the Advent Days with us! Watch this page for the special events which will be celebrated here at Maria Regina. May your Advent be blessed and holy time!
