Simbang Gabi (Filipino for “Night Masses”) is traditionally a pre-dawn novena of Masses from December 15-24 culminating at Christmas midnight mass. This tradition expresses the love of the people for God through His Mother, Mary, as they gather in prayerful anticipation of the Christmas miracle.Simbang Gabi draws on Filipino Catholics in the parishes to carry out these special gatherings and to share their religious tradition and culture with the whole parish family and community. ALL ARE WELCOME.
In the Diocese of San Diego, Simbang Gabi mass schedules vary dates and times to accommodate parish community needs. The flyer has a partial list compiled by San Diego’s Diocesan Commission for Filipino Catholics. Schedules are subject to change; contact the parishes listed or a nearby Catholic Church for more information.
