I noticed that people are searching for "Simbang Gabi" in Durham, NC. This year, I dropped out of the planning committee for this Mass; however, I can say this much: they are going back to the early Saturday morning Mass. So the Simbang Gabi Mass will be at Immaculate Conception Church this Saturday, December 17 at 5:30 am. A reception featuring traditional Simbang Gabi fare will follow in the Olive Tree Building.
At this point, that is all I know. Will I be there? Yes, I'll be there, but as a person in the pew and not as one of the organizers or a singer in the choir.
If you're in the area, and you don't mind getting up early for this wonderful Filipino tradition, please considering coming to this Mass.
