ASSUMPTION MASSES

Friday, August 14 at 5:00 pm: Live-streamed Mass

(Register at the Live-streamed Mass banner above)

Saturday, August 15 at 8:30 am: Outdoor Mass (Excessive heat warning: A long duration heat wave will impact the Bay Area from Friday through at least Wednesday of next week, with persistent daily afternoon highs in the upper 90s to mid 100s across the interior. Please take necessary precautions if you plan to attend the outdoor liturgies (head coverings, water, etc.), or just stay home).


Belief in the Assumption of Mary into heaven goes back to the sixth century. The Assumption is the fourth glorious mystery of the Rosary. It was defined as a dogma of the Catholic Church on November 1, 1950 by Pope Pius XII.


The solemnity of the Assumption is not a holy day of obligation this year because it falls on a Saturday. But we will live stream a Vigil Mass at 5:00 pm on Friday, August 14, and offer an outdoor Mass at 8:30 am on Saturday, August 15.


Almighty ever-living God,

who assumed the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of your Son, body and soul into heavenly glory.

Grant that, always attentive to the things that are above, we may merit to be sharers of her glory.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
