The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

August 15th is the Feast Day of the Assumption of Mary!

On this feast day, we celebrate the Blessed Virgin Mary being assumed - body and soul - into heavenly glory.

And good news… a festive feast doesn’t need to be fussy! If you are a monthly crate subscriber, don’t forget to…

  • Display your Feast Day Art print and read the back to learn more about the Assumption of Mary.
  • Create your own assumption scene. Use the supplies included in your crate to create an interactive assumption scene with your saints in training.

Not a subscriber? Here are a few more ideas on how to celebrate this special feast day.

  • Attend Mass (this one is a must!). The Feast of the Assumption is one of the most important feast days of the Catholic calendar, and a Holy Day of Obligation! This year, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary falls on a Sunday, so attending Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday fulfills your obligation for the feast day and Sunday!
  • Pray a Hail Mary as a family. Mary is our greatest advocate in heaven! Ask her to bring your prayers straight to the feet of Jesus.
  • Offer Mary some fresh flowers. Gather some beautiful blooms to adorn a Marian statue at your home or parish.
