I would like to know which of these services/churches will be singing O Holy Night and other traditional Christmas songs? I would love to hear an excellent rendition of O Holy Night. Thanks for your replies.

Hi, MM, I'm not promoting one church over the other, but I hear St. Gerald's has an awesome music program. The adult choir will be singing Christmas Madrigals starting at 11:30 p.m. before midnight mass.

Thanks so much Lorraine!

This is just an FYI I am a parishioner of St. Gerald. I wanted to bring to your attention that the Masses on Christmas day are at 7:30 AM, 9:00 AM, 10:30 AM, and noon. You listed: 8 AM, 10 AM , and noon as times for December 25th and that is incorrect.

Corrections for St. Germaine: (Christmas Eve masses are accurate) Christmas Day: 7:00 AM 9:00 AM 11:00 AM
