The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Friday 14th August—Mass at 7.00pm (You must register for this Mass. Please see instruction below)

Saturday 15th August—Masses at 8.30am and 6.00pm

HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION

 

Celebrated every year on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily assumption into Heaven, before her body could begin to decay—a foretaste of our own bodily resurrection at the end of time. Because it signifies the Blessed Virgin’s passing into eternal life, it is the most important of all Marian feasts and a Holy Day of Obligation, which means all baptised Catholics are obliged to attend Mass.

Due to the Mass is also a thanksgiving Mass  to celebrate for Fr Greg’s 50th Anniversary of his profession as a Carmelite and his 70th birthday. the number of people attending this mass will be restricted due to Covid-19, so you will need to register your attendance at this Mass. You can do this by using the Eventbrite app or go to www.eventbrite.com.au and search “Thanksgiving Mass for Fr Greg” or by contacting the parish office or register on the list in the Church foyer.
