      Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

      Holy Day of Obligation
      Church access_time 7:00 p.m.
      Stacks Image 1088953
      The Catholic Church teaches as dogma that the Virgin Mary "having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory". This doctrine was dogmatically defined by Pope Pius XII on 1 November 1950, in the apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deus by exercising papal infallibility. While the Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church believe in the Dormition of the Theotokos, which is the same as the Assumption, whether Mary had a physical death has not been dogmatically defined.

    Archbishop Pierre
    Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, will seek reports on the situation and needs of the Diocese of Helena from Bishop Thomas and other bishops, especially those in the northwest, as well as selected priests, religious and lay persons from the Diocese of Helena. The Nuncio is seeking in strictest confidence, both information from the Diocese itself and the qualities that will assist a new bishop, with the goal of surfacing the best possible candidates.

    Canon law lists qualities for a bishop, including: at least 35 years of age, a priest for at least 5 years, outstanding in strong faith, good morals, piety, zeal for souls, wisdom, prudence and human virtues; and he should be well versed in sacred Scripture, theology and canon law and, preferably, hold a doctorate in one of these fields.

    Following the work of consultation, the Nuncio will submit a terra, a list of three candidates, to the Congregation for Bishops. The Congregation will review the candidates and make a recommendation to Pope Francis, who makes the final choice and names our new bishop.
