Celebrate Boxing Day/St. Stephen's Day Mass and do a little good at McGonigel's Mucky Duck. ''Boxing Day is the day [in England] that the servants received 'boxes' — or gifts — from the families that they worked for throughout the year,'' explains Mucky Duck owner Rusty Andrews. ''But it's now become a day to remember those who have less. For me, it's a heart-filling day.'' To that end, the pub will host a mass-with-music officiated by Father Sean Horrigan of Christ the Redeemer Church, with attendees encouraged to bring donated blankets, clothing and canned foods for the needy. Following the service, a traditional lunch of potato and leek soup, fish and chips, shepherd's pies, pork and dressing, sherry trifle, and bread pudding with Irish whiskey sauce will be available.
