Blessing of the Infant from your Nativity set! This weekend (December 16/17) a Bambinelli Blessing will be held during Mass. “Bambinelli,” plural for the word “bambinello”, refers to the “Baby Jesus” in a Nativity scene. The Bambinelli Blessing is a thirty-year old tradition that was started in Rome by St. John Paul II. Every family is invited to bring their “Baby Jesus” from their Nativity Scene to the Mass they attend on the Third Sunday of Advent. The Bambinelli Blessing will incite us to experience God’s true joy and love that comes to us from the infant Jesus. Come and rejoice in God’s love for you in this new Advent celebration with your parish family.
