BASILICA OF OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION

We invite you to join us in our Eucharistic celebration and be nourished by the grace of God. At its heart, the Eucharist is a sacrament of communion, bringing us closer to God and to our brother and sisters in the Body of Christ. If we live the fruits of the Eucharist in our daily lives, we will fill our families and our communities with the life-giving qualities that the Liturgy brings: hospitality, concern for the poor and vulnerable, self-offering, and thanksgiving.

Sunday Mass Services

The Mass or Eucharistic Celebration is the central liturgical ritual in the Catholic Church where the Eucharist (Communion) is consecrated. The church describes the mass as "the source and summit of the Christian life".

The church teaches that through consecration by a priest the sacrificial bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ. The Catholic Church practises closed communion, with only baptised members in a state of grace ordinarily permitted to receive the Eucharist.

Our Parish Clergy

Canon Law indicates (canon 207) that "[b]y divine institution, there are among the Christian faithful in the Church sacred ministers who in law are also called clerics; the other members of the Christian faithful are called lay persons".

This distinction of a separate ministry was formed in the early times of Christianity;
One early source reflecting this distinction, with the three ranks or orders of Bishop, Priest and Deacon, is the writings of Saint Ignatius of Antioch.
