Solemnity of the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Saturday, August 15, 2020
Mass Times: 9AM & 12:10 PM
While the Solemnity falls on a Saturday and is not a Holy Day of Obligation (requiring Mass Attendance) this year, a prayerful, Scriptural reflection, and Act of Spiritual Communion is strongly encouraged if you are unable to attend Mass. As the “general dispensation” from Cardinal Tobin continues on through the pandemic times, we encourage you to remain spiritually connected to our Parish Family. We hope you will join us soon for our liturgical and sacramental life!
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.
