Many attend mass on this day, which is an obligatory feast day of the Catholic Church. And will also get a welcome day off work or out of school.

It is believed, according to centuries-old tradition as well as Catholic dogma proclaimed by Pope Pius XII in 1950, that Mary’s body died and was buried but was “assumed” into Heaven rather than seeing decay.
