Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord


Contributed by Carsten Martensen

This Thursday, May 9, 2013, the Catholic Community celebrates the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.  Ascension Thursday is a Holy Day of Obligation.  Everyone is invited and welcome to join in the Liturgy of the Eucharist (Mass) on Thursday at 8AM or at 6PM in Muller Chapel!

Let us gather to hear the words of the angel, God's messenger, "...why are you standing there looking at the sky?"  Let's not just stand around!!  It is up to us to live the life and love of Jesus Chirst.  As St. Paul prays, "May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to God's call."
