Holy Day of Obligation

The Assumption of Mary is the celebration of her passing into eternal life when she was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory upon the conclusion of her earthly life. Though the Church has long believed in the Assumption of Mary, the dogma was only formally defined by Pope Pius XII in 1950.

The Assumption is a feast day celebrated every August 15th. It is a Holy Day of Obligation to attend Mass.
