Misa de Gallo - Filipino Community CelebrationOur strong Filipino community enables the celebration of the Misa de Gallo novena. Misa de Gallo means Mass of the Rooster. Cockcrow is one of the watches of the night. It was at this time that Peter realized he had betrayed the Lord. The disciples failed to keep the night watch in Gethsemane, and Pilate condemned Jesus at the morning watch.
Misa de Gallo represents the church keeping watch each day for the coming of Christ as a sign of fidelity. The Masses are held at 5:30 AM on nine consecutive days preceding Christmas. All parishioners are invited to participate. Contact Josie Tizon at JosieTizon@comcast.net.
