2020 Southern Tier In-Person Christmas Masses

The following list of in-person Christmas Masses for Diocese of Rochester parishes located in the Southern Tier was compiled from parish bulletins and websites. If a parish doesn’t have Mass times listed, it is because these resources were not available or updated, and information will be added to this list as soon as it becomes available. Mass times are subject to change, and Massgoers are advised to check parish websites for the latest information.
