Celebrating the Saints and the Feasts of the Church

Most saints and holy people have specially designated feast days. On those days we remember these holy men and women in a special way. The tradition arose from the early Christian custom of commemorating each martyr annually on the date of his or her death, or birth into heaven, a date therefore referred to in Latin as the martyr's dies natalis ("day of birth"). The Church also celebrates special events or happenings in the history of the Church with solemnities, feasts, and memorials. The saint days and other celebrations in the month of August are:

August 1 - The Feast of Saint Peter in Chains

August 4 - Saint John Vianney, priest

August 6 - The Transfirguration of the Lord

August 8 - Saint Dominic, priest

August 10 - Saint Lawrence, deacon and martyr

August 11 - Saint Clare, virgin

August 14 - Saint Maximilian Kolbe, priest and martyr

August 15 - The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Holy Day of Obligation)

August 21 - Saint Pius X, pope

August 22 - The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

August 24 - Saint Bartholomew, apostle

August 28 - Saint Augustine, bishop and doctor of the Church

August 29 - The Passion of Saint John the Baptist

 

All you holy men and women, pray for us!
