On Wednesday, August 15, we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Masses will be on Tuesday, the Vigil, at 6:15 pm and Masses on Wednesday at 8 am and at 6:15 pm. This is a Holy Day of Obligation.
On this day, the church celebrates Mary, the humble, sinless woman chosen to be the mother of our Lord, who, having lived a full earthly life, was taken up body and soul to heaven, where she shares in the glory of her Son’s resurrection. She is also our mother, as she is the mother of the body of Christ, the Church. May she be a model of faithfulness and holiness for all of us.
