Holy Day of Obligation*

The Feast of the Assumption, which commemorates Our Lady’s entrance into heaven body and soul at the end of her life, is one of the most beautiful mysteries observed in our liturgical calendar.  This important glorious mystery is counted as a Holy Day of Obligation

The Mass Schedule Is As Follows:

* Holy Days of Obligation for Catholics carry the same obligation for Mass attendance as Sundays. This means failure to attend Mass on a Holy Day of Obligation constitutes a sin, and reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation would be required before approaching communion for a Catholic who has failed in this obligation.
