Next Sermon - 7:00 AM on Sunday 28
On August 15th, 2018, we invite you to join the monastic community in celebrating the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Assumption marks God’s action, when at the end of her time on Earth, the Blessed Virgin Mary was taken into heaven corporeally (body and soul). This Solemnity is a holy day of obligation for Catholics on which they are to attend Mass. Our celebration of the Eucharist for the Solemnity will be at 11AM in the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians, with Abbot Placid Solari presiding in a solemn pontifical celebration.
All are welcome to join the monastic community as well in praying the Liturgy of the Hours for the Solemnity, with 1st Vespers on August 14th at 5:30PM, and on August 15th with Vigils at 6AM, Lauds at 7:30AM, and 2nd Vespers at 5:30PM
