Yes, you have to go to Mass twice this Christmas (Sunday and Monday); No two for one
This year, the liturgical calendar presents us with a conundrum: What do we do when the Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve fall on the same day, and the Nativity of the Lord falls the very next day?
The Fourth Sunday of Advent is always the last Sunday before Christmas Day. So, many faithful may wonder which celebration they will encounter if they attend Mass on the evening of December 24: Fourth Sunday of Advent or Christmas Eve? Catholics are obliged to celebrate Mass for BOTH the 4th Sunday in Advent AND Christmas.
Fourth Sunday of Advent
Obligation may be fulfilled from the Saturday, December 23 5 p.m. Mass, or the Sunday, December 24 9:30 a.m. Mass
Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)
Obligation may be fulfilled from the evening 4 p.m., 7 p.m. and Midnight Mass Sunday, December 24 or
through the 9:30 a.m. Mass Monday, December 25.
