Feast of the Immaculate Conception

The faithful celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8, 9 months before the nativity of Mary which is celebrated on September 8. But the Liturgical celebration for the feast was held today, December 9, because December 8 fell on a Sunday (2nd Sunday of Advent). As defined in the Catholic Doctrine, "Mary was preserved exempt from all stain (macula) of original sin at the first moment of her animation, and sanctifying grace was given to her before sin could have taken effect in her soul."

December 8 also marks the Cityhood of Taguig.
