Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

 “And so the Lord Jesus, when he had finished speaking to them, was taken up to heaven, and is seated now at the right hand of God…” (Mark 16:19).


The Diocese of Austin has transferred the observance of the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord from Thursday, May 10 to Sunday, May 13, which is also Mother’s Day in 2018. This Ascension Sunday, like all Sundays, remains a day of obligation for Mass. May 10 will then be Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter.
