Bishop Ron Hicks to celebrate Midnight Christmas Mass
Bishop Ron Hicks of the Diocese of Joliet will celebrate Midnight Christmas Mass at the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus in Joliet.
The 12 a.m. Mass on Christmas Day is open to the public.
“The Maji followed the light from the star of Bethlehem to find the birth of Jesus, our lord and savior,” Bishop Ron Hicks said. “Let us follow the light of Christ’s love to find peace in our hearts, words and actions.”
Father William G. Dewan, rector of the cathedral, and Father John Abulag, parochial vicar, will serve as concelebrants.
The cathedral's schola cantorum and sinfonietta will perform.
