The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“I believe in the resurrection of the body.” How often do we consider these lines of the creed? The Solemnity of the Assumption reminds us of our final destiny. What Mary participates in now, we will experience at the end of time. If we persevere in God’s grace, we too will exist body and soul with Him for all eternity.

 

The Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary into heaven is a Holy Day of Obligation.

The Mass times at St. Edward will be:

Monday, August 14th Vigil Mass at 5:30 PM
Tuesday, August 15th at 8:00 AM, 12:00 Noon and 5:30 PM.
