The feast of Mary's Assumption into heaven is celebrated on Thursday, August 15th. It is one of three feasts of Mary that are Holy Days of Obligation for Catholics in the United States. January 1 is the feast of Mary, the Mother of God, and December 8 is the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. The assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven has long been held as an important Catholic belief. Masses at St. Joseph will be held in the Church at 9:00 am and a bilingual mass at 7:00 pm
"Where there is no obedience there is no virtue, where there is no virtue there is no good, where there is no good there is no love, where there is no love, there is no God, and where there is no God there is no Paradise." — St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina
