The Blessed Assumption of the Virgin Mary

The Blessed Assumption of the Virgin Mary, sometimes referred to as the Dormition of Mary, honors her journey to heaven at the end of her life. According to tradition, her body was taken to heaven intact, a symbol of our own rise to eternal life through God’s love. As one of the early celebrations of the church, it has become an important part of our faith, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating at one of our weekend Masses, 5:00 pm today, and 10:00 am, 12:30 pm, and 7:00 pm tomorrow.

As you walk along the West side of the church, you will see this window honoring the Blessed Assumption at the transept.
