World AIDS Day Mass
Sunday, December 1
Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church
Each year on December 1, the Archdiocese of Atlanta celebrates a diocesan-wide World Aids Day Mass. This liturgy is a chance for people from across the Archdiocese to come together in community to remember and pray for those we have lost due to HIV/AIDS and those currently living with this condition, their families, friends and caretakers. This event will also provide an opportunity to pray for those who work to find a cure and all who work to bring about just programs and systems associated with HIV/AIDS.
This year’s World AIDS Day Mass will be held on Sunday, December 1, at 5:00 p.m. at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, located at 2855 Briarcliff Road NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30329. Auxiliary Bishop Bernard E. Shlesinger III will serve as the principal celebrant.
