Happy August 15th- it is a day of Holy Obligation.

Notation by Marc Aupiais

Our readers are wished a blessed August 15th. In South Africa, the Assumption of Mary into Heaven (August 15) is a day of Holy Obligation, on which Catholics are required to attend church as on Sundays.

It is only one of three days still required locally in South Africa, the requirement being participation in (turning up, and being at church mentally- and partaking in the high prayer which is mass) and attendance of a mass at a Catholic church.
