Bambinelli Blessing - 3rd weekend of Advent
On December 10th and 11th, a Bambinelli Blessing will be held during all of the Masses at St. Albert the Great. “Bambinelli”, plural for the word “bambinello”, refers to the “Baby Jesus” in a Nativity scene. The Bambinelli Blessing is a thirty-year-old tradition that was started in Rome at theVatican. Every family is invited to bring their “Baby Jesus” from their Nativity Scene to the Mass they attend
on the Third Sunday of Advent and receive a blessing alongside the parish bambinelli. The Bambinelli Blessing will incite us to experience God’s true joy and love that comes to us from the infant Jesus. Come and rejoice in God’s love for you in this new
Advent celebration with your parish family.
