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.
