SPRINGFIELD — St. Alice Parish here celebrated the Feast of St. Alice (St. Adelaide) Dec. 16, with Mass at 12:15 p.m. Later in the evening, the community came together for Vespers, followed by a lecture by Father Mark Bentz, "Walk Through The Mass."

During perpetual adoration, a first-class St. Alice relic was on display. Worshippers could take prayer cards in Spanish and English.

The parish capped the night with Mexican hot chocolate, sweet bread and desserts made by parishioners.
