Christmas @ Sacred Heart

The celebration of Christmas 2020 will take on a few different characteristics because of the continuing presence of COVID-19 in the community. There remains a firm limit on the number of persons who will be able to be in the Cathedral for any of the Masses scheduled to celebrate Christmas this year. Regretfully, these limits will require that each of the scheduled Masses at the Cathedral will require a pre-registration, and only those who are registered will be able to enter the Cathedral.
