‘Blue Christmas Mass’ set for Dec. 24 at 4 p.m.

Father J. Ronald Knott will celebrate a Blue Christmas Mass at Bellarmine University’s Our Mary of the Woods Chapel on Dec. 24 at 4 p.m.

The Mass is celebrated for those who may be grieving or experiencing loss or loneliness and who want a more subdued Christmas observance.

“It will be quietly appropriate with soft music rather than blaring trumpets and full organ. The homily will center on a word of encouragement for those who are grieving,” Father Knott wrote in his column about the Mass last year.

Father Knott has asked worshippers who are not struggling during the holidays to respect the intention of the Mass and attend the chapel’s regular Christmas Eve Mass at 6 p.m.
