Christmas Proclamation

Entrance Hymn

Priest: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

People:  Amen.

Priest: The Lord be with you.

People: and with your Spirit.

Act of Contrition:  

I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters,

that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words,

in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,

(all strike their breast three times)

through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault;

therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints,

and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
