Back by popular demand! We received so many requests to do another “Rorate” Mass this Advent, we said yes! It is WORTH getting up this early for the candlelight, beautiful music and sunrise!

Why the early hour? The "Rorate Caeli" (Latin for “Drop down dew, ye heavens”, the opening words) Mass anticipates the Light of Christ as the sun rises. Come see it rise through St. Mary of Perpetual Help’s newly-restored golden domes!

This special Mass is celebrated during Advent  in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To learn more:

This year’s Mass will be extra-special because, as it will take place during the 40 Hours Devotion of our generous host parish, the liturgy will be celebrated “Coram Sanctissimo”, before the Blessed Sacrament exposed. Don’t miss this rare and wonderful occasion!

Thank you so much to all 382 people who attended VBP's November Mass celebrating the Feast of St. Stanislaus Kostka as part of the parish's 150th Anniversary Celebrations! We were thrilled with the turn-out and so grateful to Fr. Bus, Parish Secretary Cristina Carrazco, and all the parishioners of St. Stanislaus for their warm welcome!
