Completely random question about Catholic mass

Recommended Posts

I found a reference to the canon that covers this:




A person who assists at a Mass celebrated anywhere in a Catholic rite either on the feast day itself or in the evening of the preceding day satisfies the obligation of participating in the Mass [



It doesn't say anything about when "evening" officially begins, but I'm pretty sure it's 4 p.m. That's when my parish's Saturday Mass is, anyway! :)

Does the Saturday evening service "count" as a Sunday service? I mean, is it for people who can't make it Sunday morning who want to fulfill the Sunday service?


Just wanted to add that lots of people always go to the Saturday vigil. It's their regular routine, not a make-up date. When I was a girl, we always went on Saturday evening. In fact, it seemed very weird to go to church on Sunday morning.
