POPE FRANCIS’ INTENTIONS FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST:
Universal Intention: VOLUNTEERS. That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.
Evangelization Intention: OUTREACH TO THE MARGINALIZED. That setting aside our very selves we may learn to be neighbors to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.
August 15 is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Because it falls on a Saturday this year, it is not a holy day of obligation.
