Christmas 2021 Mass Schedule and End of the Year Holy Days of Obligation

With Christmas falling on a Saturday this year, it can be a challenge to determine which Masses fulfill which obligations.  The Bishops have been clear that there are no two-for-one deals, which means that a single Mass cannot act to fulfill two obligations at once.  Below is the Mass Schedule for both Saint Rose of Lima in Savannah, and St. Patrick in Forest City.  Please pay particular attention to the notes in parentheses.  Those Masses can count for either obligation, but not both.
