Celebrate Assumption’s Patronal Feast on Monday, August 15!

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin MaryMonday, August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a Roman Catholic holyday and the patronal feast of Assumption University. On the Solemnity of the Assumption, “we profess our belief that Mary has gone before us, body and soul, into heaven. For her, the resurrection of the dead has taken place already. And thus the Assumption is technically an ‘Easter feast.’” (Companion to the Calendar, Second Edition, Liturgy Training Publications).

All members of the Assumption community are invited to celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption at the following services in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit:

8:00 AM: Morning Prayer

12:00 PM: Mass

5:35 PM: Evening Prayer

Welcome Mass for Class of 2026 (and no 10 AM Mass) on Sunday, August 21
