What time is Midnight Mass? Masstimes in the D.

Update: 4:00 am Christmas Eve. Additions to Renaissance. Addition of Trinity Vicariate. Some links added. This will probably be the last update. Please go to a mass and be generous. (And come back!) If you can't find what you are looking for here, try the AOD parish listing and give the parish a call.
Update: 12:00 am on 16 December. Additions to Renaissance and South Oakland Vicariates. Added Southwest Vicariate.
Update: 4:00pm on Gaudete Sunday. Info for Sweetest Heart of Mary and St. Josaphat.
Update: 12:40pm on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Details for St. Joseph and Assumption Grotto added. St. Justin Hazel Park added. Old St. Mary's added. Please leave a comment if you want to report the mass time at your parish!

Christmas is a wonderful time. We celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God made man. Emmanuel. God-with-us. We emulate God in His giving of the greatest gift to fallen man by giving gifts. Give a gift also to whichever parish you visit. The entire Christmas offering stays in the parish you give it to. Consider going to a Parish in Detroit (or elsewhere) that may be in need of a Christmas Bonus. (Make an offering at your own Parish as well!)

I will update this list as it is not exhaustive. I will go vicariate by vicariate to list mass times in Detroit, specifically the vigil masses. Go to Midnight Mass in the D and your own parish on Christmas day!
