Times for the vigil Mass

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Would it be liturgically okay to celebrate the Christmas Eve, December 24 at 3:00 PM? if not, should we ask the permission from the Bishop to do that ? Thanks.

I am thinking to do the second Christmas Eve this year at my parish due to observing the social distancing guideline


A: The USCCB recently reminded bishops that they may set the time for the vigil Mass. Ask your bishop first.
