General Announcements

Simbang Gabi Masses are Dec. 15 at two parishes

“Simbang Gabi”—which is Tagalog for “Night Mass”—liturgies will be celebrated on Dec. 15 at 4 p.m. at St. Patrick Church, 1807 Poplar St., in Terre Haute, and at 5 p.m. at St. Gabriel the Archangel Church, 6000 W. 34th St., in Indianapolis.

The Masses will be followed by a festive meal.

The observance of this Advent tradition of Filipino Catholics is sponsored by the archdiocesan Office of Multicultural Ministry.

In the Philippines, Simbang Gabi is also known as the “Misa de Gallo”—“Mass of the Crowing Rooster”—or the “Misa de Aguinaldo”—“Mass of Thanksgiving.”

It involves a novena of Masses which are celebrated before dawn to accommodate the work schedules of Filipino farm workers and fishermen.

Since the Masses are usually celebrated at night, churches are decorated with lanterns that remind worshipers of the star that led the Magi to Bethlehem.

For more information about the Masses, call 317-236-1562 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1562, or send an e-mail to Father Kenneth Taylor, director of the archdiocesan Office of Multicultural Ministry, at ktaylor@archindy.org.

 

Catholic Community Foundation to sponsor continuing education seminar

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis’ Catholic Community Foundation is hosting a continuing education session for attorneys, accountants, financial advisers and others titled “How to Incorporate Philanthropy in Estate Planning–Ethical Considerations in Estate and Charitable Planning.”

The free seminar begins at 8 a.m. and concludes at noon on Dec. 18 in the community meeting room at McCauley, Nicolas and Company, 702 N. Shore Drive, in Jeffersonville.

A continental breakfast and light lunch will be provided for participants.

For registration information, contact Annie Riddick at 317-236-1482 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1482, or send an e-mail to ariddick@archindy.org.

 

Grant will help support work study at Providence Cristo Rey High School

On Nov. 14, Providence Cristo Rey High School in Indianapolis received a $325,000 grant from the Glick Fund to support the school’s Corporate Work Study program.

In this program, students gain on-the-job experience by working one day a week at companies and other organizations in the Indianapolis metropolitan area.

In return, those companies and organizations help provide tuition assistance for the students.
