Simbang Gabi

We invite you to join us in a special Novena of Masses from 15-23 December 2022, celebrated at 18h30 every night in that period, (NB. 17th Dec: 17h30)  & (18th at Notre Dame: 19h00).  Known as ‘Simbang Gabi’ (meaning “Church-going at Night”), this is a much-loved Filipino custom that we are introducing at St John XXIII. Come, join our Filipino community in these celebrations! Mass will be celebrated in English but the music for the Mass will be in Tagalog and English. On our final night 23rd of December, there will be a sharing of Filipino foods in the parish hall with a glass of Processco!
