COLORADO SPRINGS. The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which takes place on Aug. 15, is a holy day of obligation this year. 

Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption as a dogma on Nov. 1, 1950, proclaiming that the belief that the Blessed Virgin Mary was taken up body and soul into heaven at the end of her earthly life forms part of the deposit of faith received from the apostles. 

The pope’s proclamation did not include details regarding the manner, time or place in which the assumption occurred.

When the solemnity falls on a Saturday or Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated, according to a 1991 decree by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Around the world, the year 1933 was a year of hardship, misery, and the unexpected. For many countries, it was one of the worst years of the Great Depression. In Russia, severe famine claimed the lives of several million people. Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Nazi Germany and opened his country’s first concentration camp, Dachau. In the United States, the Southern Great Plains suffered through 38 dust storms, one powerful enough to rip the topsoil from South Dakota’s farmlands.

COLORADO SPRINGS. About one of every 500 people in El Paso County claims to be of Vietnamese heritage, according to the Census Bureau. That amounts to fewer than 1,400 people, and for the Catholics among them who want to celebrate Mass in their native language, they have one parish in Colorado Springs from which to choose: Vietnamese Holy Martyrs.

It was natural, then, that Salesian Sister Phuong Nguyen, born in Vietnam, educated since childhood in the United States and a newcomer to Colorado Springs, eventually would settle into a pew at Vietnamese Holy Martyrs.
