Last night my family attended mass and at the beginning a number of dates were read describing the timing the birth of Christ. I thought I heard a specific year given for the Flood, but didn't find this when I searched online for the Roman Missal.

"when century upon century had passed
since the Almighty set his bow in the clouds after the Great Flood,
as a sign of covenant and peace;"

http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship ... mation.cfm

Did I hear incorrectly, or is there a version of the text that includes a year of the Flood?

In the older rite of Mass a specific year from creation is given.

Unless I'm misinformed, it's only Midnight Mass.

Mass at night, every Christmas. Can you tell that we attend Midnight Mass.
