Dear Parish Family:
Today the church celebrates the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into the Kingdom of Heaven! Since this day falls on a Saturday, it is not a Holy day of obligation. However, I invite all of us to renew our dedication and devotion to our Blessed Mother by reading one of the scripture passages about Mary’s Annunciation, Visitation or Birth of Christ. Perhaps you would want to pray a rosary today.
Let us pray that Mary, the Mother of Jesus and our Church will embrace all of those who are suffering during this Global health crisis, and may She provide Her maternal embrace, love and care.
“Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen!”
Peace, Msgr. Kevin
