The Solemnity of the Assumption
Thursday 15th August
HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION
Masses at 7.00am, 9.00am (Whole School Mass) and 7.00pm
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.
