Simbang Gabi 2018

 

Rev. Father Romanus Nwaru, Blessed Savior Parishioners and Multicultural Commission members welcomed the Filipino community for Simbang Gabi.  Simbang Gabi is a nine day novena of Masses from December 15 - 23.  Simbang means mass and gabi means night.  This Filipino/Filipino- American celebration is part of the Advent preparation for Christmas.  Each of the nine Masses are held in different parishes in the Milwaukee Archdiocese. 

The Filipino Catholic Ministry and Blessed Savior Parish joined together to sponsor the 3rd day of this Novena.  The start of Mass included a procession, where children and other parishioners carried in lights and poinsettias. Near the altar two traditional parols, Philippine lanterns, hung with its lights glowing.  During this celebration, a traveling choir led the congregation in songs in Tagalog, which is one of the main languages of the Philippines.  

After Mass, everyone was invited to the church hall for fellowship and Filipino food.  It was enjoyed by all.
