The Assumption of Mary

This week we celebrate the Assumption of Mary. It is a Holy Day of Obligation, and Masses are
available Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm and Thursday at 8:30 am (Latin), Noon, and 7:00 pm.
The Assumption of Mary has been celebrated since the fifth century, and is a celebration of
Mary’s entrance into Heaven. Because Mary was sinless from her Immaculate Conception, She
merited to be taken directly to Heaven, and that is the central focus of the Holy Day this week.
Mary is honored as the greatest of the Saints because She was the first to believe, and She is
model for all of us in regard to the worship of Her Son, Jesus Christ.
For the Greater Glory of God,
Fr. Matt
