Feast of the Holy Innocents
HOLY INNOCENTS REMEMBRANCE
The Feast of the Holy Innocents (December 28) commemorates the children who died when Herod commanded that all the children in the town of Bethlehem from two years old and under be killed in hopes to eliminate the chance of a Jewish King.
This remembrance is held at all the Sunday Masses, usually when the Feast of the Holy Innocents falls on a Sunday or on the Sunday before/after the Feast no matter where it occurs during the week. This event is very meaningful for those who participate and for those who witness it.
