Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – August 15
A special ‘thank you’ to all those attending the Solemn Mass on this great feast day of Our Lady. The Assumption is celebrated each year on August 15th. This year a special ‘Coronation Mass’ was chosen to joyously honor our Blessed Mother. Those participating in the Latin music for the celebration, practiced diligently for the past year. This special traditional Solemn High Mass was well attended at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sleepy Eye.
St. Mary’s celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass each Sunday at 11:30am. High Masses are sung while low Masses allow for quiet meditation. However, both Masses are centered around the transubstantiation of the Holy Eucharist, We feed our bodies, and we have a great need to feed our souls as well. All are invited to join in honoring and praising God, as we celebrate Holy Mass in the traditional form each Sunday at 11:30am.
