Sim bang Gabi, which means” Night Mass,” in Filipino, is a novena — a nine- day series of millions in expectation of Christmas and to recognize the Blessed mama. The tradition has been celebrated by Filipino Catholics in theSt. Louis area for decades.

Novena prayers began in homes around the 1960s, and it came more homogenized in the 1980s, with millions being offered in church. The novena is organized by the Philippine Liturgical Society, which hosts several liturgical events in the Filipino tradition throughout the time.
