Bambinelli Sunday

Bambinelli Sunday

For the past several decades, each year on Gaudete Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent, children (and adults) bring their baby Jesus figures from the crib at their homes to St. Peter’s Square in Rome where the Pope will bless both the people and the figurines during the Angelus.

This year we will celebrate ‘Bambinelli Sunday’ at our Parish Mass in St Robert’s on Sunday 15th December at 11am.

All are invited to bring the Baby Jesus figure from their homes to Mass that morning to be blessed. Families can even make their own ‘bambinelli’ if they want.

A suggestion is, following the blessing, take your ‘bambinelli’ home and place it in a gift box, wrap it and save it for Christmas.

Let this be the first gift your family opens on Christmas Day.
