Assumption Grotto offering Several Immaculate Conception Day Masses

While Father Z and Ed Peters debate whether one Mass can count for two obligations when a holy day of obligation falls on the eve of a Sunday, I offer here the Mass schedule for Assumption Grotto for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, which is tomorrow, December 8th. 
  • 6:30 AM      9:30 AM    NOON

I didn't ask, but I'm assuming the 9:30 will be using the 1962 Missal as it does on Sundays.

 On  the Archdiocese of Detroit website is this:
