Assumption of Mary

posted 16 Aug 2018, 13:45 by Michelle Virgona
This feast is traditionally observed on August 15th to celebrate Mary being taken from this life by her natural death and assumed body and soul into heaven. Only since 1950 has this teaching been a dogma of the church, proclaimed by Pope Pius XII to be infallible and is seen as a holy day of obligation. This event of the assumption is a source of great hope for us as we strive to be faithful like Mary and gain the grace of eternal life. 

Thank you 2B for marking this special feast with a very reverent assembly and well done all the children from Year 3-6 who were very respectful when attending the Parish Mass. Please take the time to say this prayer with you family. 

Prayer to Mary 
Holy Mary, on this day, we honour your life as the chosen Mother of Jesus. 
We remember your dedication to God
and the joy and heartache you had in your life as you followed God's plan for you. 
We pray for the love you had for God, 
the hope you had in Jesus, 
and the joy you found in your heart.
Pray for us as we grow in love, hope and joy.
