When Christmas Day falls on a weekend, does Mass for Christmas count for both Christmas Day and Sunday?

The short answer is no.

When Christmas Day falls on a Saturday, there are two separate obligations for Catholics to celebrate Mass, one is for Christmas Day and the other is for the Sunday.

Catholics fulfill the holy day of obligation for Christmas, the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ, at Christmas Eve vigil Masses and at any Masses celebrated on Christmas Day.

Here is our Mass schedule for Christmas Eve (Vigil) and Christmas Day:

December 24th: Christmas Eve
5:30pm (with Children’s portrayal of Christmas Story)
7:00pm (Spanish)
12:00 Midnight (Bilingual)

Please note that we will not have extra Masses in the hall this year. All Masses will be in the church, so please plan accordingly.

December 25th: Christmas Day
1:00pm (Spanish)

Please note, we will not have any vigil masses on Saturday, December 25th to fulfill our Sunday obligation since they would be considered Christmas Day Masses, but will continue with our regular Mass schedule for Sunday services on December 26th.
