Bambinelli Sunday

Bambinelli Sunday

  • Gaudete Sunday is the third Sunday of Advent. Gaudate means Rejoice!

  • On this Sunday we rejoice that Christ is coming.

  • The Pink Candle is lit on the Advent Wreath.

  • A tradition in Rome and now elsewhere is for families to bring the baby Jesus from their family crib to Church where they are blessed at mass or another prayer service.

  • Parishes could invite families to bring their baby Jesus figure to mass for the blessing.

  • Families can be reminded only to place the crib figure into their Crib after the Christmas Eve Mass.
