The Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord – This Feast Day takes place on Thursday, May 26th and it is a Holy Day of Obligation. This is also a diocesan holiday and, therefore, our parish offices will be closed. Our Holy Day PCA Mass times are as follows: 8am Mass at St. Mary’s in Hamilton and 5:30pm Mass at St. Bernard’s in Waterville. The 5:30pm Mass at St. Bernard’s will be live-streamed on our Facebook page @Route20Catholic.
