If it's abrogated, is there a Vigil?
  • Assumption....

    It's still the Assumption...even when abrogated as a Holy Day....but does one then celebrate the Vigil?

    Seems obvious that you would, but then that eliminates the Friday evening Mass of the 14th...

    I think we are having a Mass for Assumption in the morning, with music, but I don't know about a Vigil Mass.

  • The obligation to attend Mass is abrogated, but not the solemnity.
    The vigil may still be celebrated.
  • Just got word that is will not be celebrated here...thanks, all.

    Paulist Press ORDO (book 29 page 177) says:
    14 Friday
    ...
    The Vigil Mass of the Assumption may be celebrated this evening
    either before or after EP I of the solemnity.

    [For completeness,
    if you read the General Instruction of the Liturgy of the Hours
    you can even discover how to combine Mass and the Hours.]
