THE ASSUMPTION, (August 15), the oldest feast day of our Blessed Mother. It proclaims that she was taken up, body and soul, into heaven. This belief dated back to the apostles themselves.
On November 1, 1050, Pope Pius XII proclaimed the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into Heaven a dogma of the catholic Church. With that, an ancient belief became catholic doctrine, and the Assumption was declared a truth revealed by God.
THE SOLEMNITY OF THE ASSUMPTION of our Blessed Mother into Heaven falls this year on Saturday. Recent adjustments in the U.S. Church's holy day regulations indicate that for this particular holy day, Mass obligation is suspended when it falls on either a Saturday or a Monday. You are encouraged, nevertheless, to join us Saturday morning for our customary 7:30 Mass. Confessions will be heard in the sacristy at 7:00.
"SEE ALL THE... GOOD WORKS you have made possible." 'Thank you. And congratulations to all the donors from O.L.P.H. who stepped forward and made a gift to ensure that the 2020 catholic Appear was an overwhelming success. Once again, a heartfelt Thank You. May God continue to bless everyone in our Parish Family.
