The Feast of the Assumption of Mary–August 15
The Feast of the Assumption of Mary celebrates the mystery that Mary was taken bodily to heaven at the end of her life. The significance for believers is that we have also been promised an eternal bodily existence when Christ returns in glory on the last day.
The Assumption is a holy day of obligation for Catholics this year. Mass to celebrate this mystery will take place at St. Noel at 7:00pm on August 15th.
