Solemnity of the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
(a Holy Day of Obligation)
Thursday, August 15, 2019
Mass Times: 9AM, 12:10 PM & 7PM
The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is God's crowning of His work as Mary ends her earthly life and enters eternity. The feast turns our eyes in that direction, where we will follow when our earthly life is over. The Assumption looks to eternity and gives us hope that we, too, will follow Our Lady when our life is ended.
