Connecting with a Catholic Community on Campus
Are you or someone you know attending an area college and wanting to stay connected to the faith? A contact form has been created that forwards contact information to the institution's campus ministry office or to the parish responsible for the campus. The form can be found here and ministry/parish contacts can be found here. If the college is outside of the Diocese of Rochester, please contact Shannon.Loughlin@dor.org.
Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary
On Saturday, the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary into heaven. The dogma of faith that Pope Pius XII proclaimed on November 1, 1950, asserts that the Virgin Mary "having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory". During the Angelus on the solemnity, Pope Francis said that the Virgin Mary shows us that our goal is not to gain the things here on earth, which are fleeting, but the homeland above, which is forever.
