Gannon University Announces Christmas Eve Mass Time Change
Posted: December 23, 2017
Gannon University is delighted to welcome the many alumni,
faculty, staff and families who come to celebrate Christmas Eve
Mass in the Mary, Seat of Wisdom Chapel, 520 Peach St. The
time of the Mass has been changed from 7 p.m. to 6 p.m. this
The Rev. Nicholas J. Rouch, vicar for education for the Catholic
Diocese of Erie, will serve as celebrant, with the Rev. George
Strohmeyer, senior chaplain at Gannon, and the Very Rev. Michael T.
Kesicki, associate vice president for University Mission &
Ministry at Gannon, assisting.
Gannon has celebrated Christmas Eve Mass for at least three
decades, Kesicki said. The Mass is special in that it regularly
attracts Gannon staff, faculty and students along with retirees and
alumni and their families and friends.
"They appreciate reconnecting to Gannon," Kesicki said of the
retirees and alumni. "It's a Gannon family celebration. It's a nice
Christmas at home, so to speak."
