Experience Christmas Eve Midnight Mass

Christmas Eve Midnight Mass

You are invited to experience the beauty, the wonder, and the inspiration of Christmas at the Mass at Midnight in the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in Norwich. If you’ve never been before, know that all your senses will be engaged.

Upon walking up to the center doors of the cathedral, your eyes will be greeted by two large wreaths. This visual beauty spills out from the inside, where you will see the beautifully restored cathedral resplendent with the decorations that tell the glory of this day. It is a gift, given to us by the generations of parishioners who have walked through these doors.

Plan on arriving early, as the cathedral choir begins singing familiar carols approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of Mass.

Should circumstances prevent you from attending this Mass, the Communications Office is once again partnering with radio stations WICH and WCTY to broadcast the Mass in its entirety. It also can be heard anywhere in the world via a livestream provided by WCTY.com. We are truly blessed for this ongoing gift.

The beauty of the cathedral can be experienced year-round and will remain fully decorated until the Solemnity of the Epiphany January 6, 2022. Masses are daily 7am and noon.

‘Little Miracle of Lille’: How a Candlelight Mass Gathers Hundreds of Young People Every Week in France
“The good makes no noise,” St. Francis de Sales would say of Lille’s candlelight Mass.  Indeed, while France regularly shows itself to be at the forefront of the de-Christianization of the West and recently made headlines for its constitutionalization of abortion, the embers of Christian renewal are already igniting — quietly yet powerfully — on the country’s northern horizon. Every Tuesday evening at 10 p.m., between 800 and 900 students converge on the historic St. Joseph’s Chapel at Lille Catholic University for a...
