Extraordinary Form Low Mass at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 15th at St. Mary Magdalen Chapel
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. However, in the United States and other countries, the bishops have received permission from the Vatican to abrogate (temporarily waive) the requirement for Catholics to attend Mass when it falls on a Saturday or a Monday.
Instead of an obligation, take this most Blessed of Feast Days as a "Holy Day of Opportunity"!
