Celebrating the New Year with the Lord

Continuing a tradition I started my first year in the Seminary, I'll be spending the time from 11 p.m. - 1 a.m. in adoration and at Holy Mass. However, this year, instead of going to a private holy hour and Holy Mass at the Seminary, I'll be going to the event at Incarnate Word Parish. They have a holy hour, confessions, a Rosary, and midnight Holy Mass with Rev. Eugene Morris as the main celebrant.

All are invited—and if you live outside of St. Louis, check and see if any local parishes in your diocese are having similar liturgical schedules. What better way to start the new year than by receiving a plenary indulgence? (Well, that is, if the conditions [USCCB.org, CCC 1471-1479] are met...).
