Aug 15 - “Assumption into Heaven” © artwork by Brenda Nippert. Happy Feast of the Assumption!

As Catholics, we believe that Mary was assumed into Heaven both body and soul together, where she was crowned in glory Queen over all things.  Mary is the only human to be given this favor because of her perfect state of purity, being free from all stain of sin. The Assumption of Mary is cause for great celebration within the church. In the United States it is celebrated on August 15th and is often declared with processions and festivals with much fanfare.
