Feast of the Assumption

​​feast of the assumption.jpgAs a school community we celebrated the Feast of the Assumption.  This feast day celebrates the belief that the body and soul of Mary was taken into heaven after the end of her earthly life. 

Mary’s assumption into heaven is seen as a fulfilment of Jesus’ promise to the faithful that we too will be received into the kingdom of God.  Mary is seen as a first disciple of Jesus and a model for us all.
