Assumption of Mary- Are You Ready to Celebrate?

The Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary is on August 15. FYI- Jesus Ascended into heaven. Mary was Assumed into heaven. Hence the "Ascension of Jesus" and the "Assumption of Mary". Guess Jesus could do it on his own, and Mary was abducted alien style. Ok, only kidding about the 'alien abduction' part. :-)

Here are some ways to have fun in celebration of the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary! (Man, what a mouth full!) 

Who loves free Catholic coloring pages? I do! And these ones 
from St. John's Catholic Church are some of my favorites!
This coloring page of Mary's Assumption is just beautiful.

Over at Catholic and Loving It, they made this great
Marian Cake for celebrating the Assumption of Mary.

If you're looking for food ideas, you could try

Also, here are some ideas from my Ascension of Jesus post. I love this
jello dish because not only is it clouds for the assumption, but
it's blue to symbolize Mary, too! :-)

I wish I would have had the time to pull off a craft for this one- maybe next year. Anyway, enjoy the coloring page and say good bye to your diet for this one!

  1. I'm willing to bet that while I'm sitting at Mass this weekend I'll remember that Mary was taken "alien style" and start to laugh. It always works out that way.

  2. Hi Lacy,
    Been reading your blog for a while, but I'm mostly a lurker and not a commenter. I don't have a family yet, but I know that when I do I'll be turning to your site for all these great Catholic ideas!

    I have some awards waiting for you on my blog; come check them out when you have time! :)

  3. Thank you once again for linking to SJTB's website! :) It's great to know that our coloring pages are being used and shared.

    That jello dish is amazing ~ I didn't get to make it this year but I must add that to my repertoire!

  9. I hardly comment, however I browsed some comments on this page "Assumption of Mary- Are You Ready to Celebrate?".

    I do have some questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be just me or do a few of these comments look like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with
    anything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete
    urls of all your social community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook
    page or linkedin profile?
