Mass to Commemorate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Apse_mosaic_Hagia_Sophia_Virgin_and_ChildEvery year on August 15, we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This event commemorates the death of Mary and her 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.

Mass for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated in the Student Center Chapel this Thursday at noon.
