2017 Simbang Gabi Novena of Masses

The Simbang Gabi, a Novena of Masses, first introduced in Mexico, was known as Misa de Aguinaldo. The Spanish missionaries brought the practice to the Philippines in the 17th century as a way to deepen the faith of the people. The Masses were celebrated as early as 4:00 AM to allow farmers to participate in the liturgy before they went to the fields. Simbang Gabi is a long-held Catholic tradition among many Filipinos not only in our country but anywhere in the world where Filipinos find home. Download the announcement.
