The evening mass on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Diocese of Pasig Ministry of Liturgical Affairs announces the following in connection with the observance of the evening mass of the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15) and Saturday anticipated Sunday Mass of the 20th Sunday in Ordinary time:

1.  that the solemnities of the Blessed Virgin Mary listed in the general calendar takes precedence over the Sundays in Ordinary Time as indicated in the Table of Precedence of Liturgical Days (I,; II,6).  Therefore, the evening mass on August 15, Saturday should take the Proper of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and not the anticipated Mass of the 20th Sunday in Ordinary time;

2.   that all presidential prayers will be taken from the Proper of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

However, Bishop Mylo decrees that those who will participate in the Saturday evening masses of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary also satisfy their Sunday obligation.

Refer to the Ordo for other pertinent liturgical notes for your guidance.
