    Foundation Day - Feast of the Assumptionhttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Foundation-Day---Feast-of-the-Assumption.aspxFoundation Day - Feast of the Assumption<p>This Monday the 15th of August is a day of joyful celebration for Catholics. The Church celebrates the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, for Mary was raised to heaven to be with God, just as Jesus was.<br><br>Even though she did not know what God had in store for her, Mary had faith. She trusted that God would help her to be able to do whatever God wanted. Mary now shares in the glory of God with all the angels and saints.<br><br>We remember when Mary was taken (“assumed”) into heaven, body and soul, after she died. You will not find this story in the Bible. However, a tradition handed down from the earliest days of the Church says that Mary died in Jerusalem and was buried in a tomb. But when the apostles opened the tomb again, her body was gone. Why would God take Mary’s body and soul into heaven? In part because Mary is special to God: she said “yes” to becoming the mother of Jesus. But God also wanted to show us that one day, all of us will share in the bodily resurrection of Jesus. Mary is the first person in the Church to experience the resurrection in its fullness.                          <br><br>Source:  Jerry Windley-Daou​st<br><br>On this Feast of the Assumption of Mary, we gather to give thanks and praise for the holy and blessed life of Mary the Mother of Jesus. We celebrate how God has honoured her and welcomed her into heaven.<br><br></p><p>As a Marian School, Star of the Sea celebrates the Feast of the Assumption through our Foundation Day. We will celebrate and come together in prayer for the Feast of the Assumption on Friday 19th August.  Please refer to our latest newsletter for details of the activities planned.​<br></p><p><br></p><p><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/Assumption.jpg" alt="Assumption.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;">​<br></p>
