A live nativity scene featuring Jesus, Mary, Joseph, shepherds and sheep will culminate the service.
“The midnight service will have till the majesty of choirs, altar servers, deacons and three priests," O’Callaghan said. “The idea for the midnight Mass comes from the historic tradition that a star was the visible sign that drew the witnesses to Jesus’ birth. This is not only a tradition at Sts. Peter and Paul, but in the Catholic Church as a whole. The midnight hour is dark, and the birth ol the ('brist child is the light given to all of us to illuminate the dark ness. The mystery and beauty of this hour to celebrate the nativity has a very special and deep meaning.”
