Feast of the Assumption in Massa Lubrense, but the community does not want to say goodbye to Father Ambrogio
We are approaching the Solemnity of the Assumption, a very heartfelt event – as well as in Positano – also in Massa Lubrense. It is the second edition of this solemn celebration in the much loved Church of the Annunciation, yet the citizens of Massa are preparing to celebrate this event with tears in their faces for the farewell of Father Ambrogio, who is about to moving to Sicily. The community is literally desperate for his farewell: a parish priest full of energy who revived this place to the point of welcoming faithful from all over the world. Citizens of the Sorrento Peninsula and neighboring areas such as Positano reached the parish only for him, his charisma and his spirituality which he is able to convey with a good and kind character. Same situation for Don Pasquale in Piano di Sorrentowell liked by the Carottese community but forced – he too – to reach an island, that of Capri.
Returning to the feast of the Assumption, it is Father Ambrogio himself who spreads the Sunday evening program, August 14, 2022, an evening that will be consecrated to the celebration of the Assumption for the fraternity of the children of the Annunciation of charity.
20.30: start of the veneration of Our Lady of the Dormition inside the Church with the presentation of our offers.
20.45: second moment of the veneration of the Madonna in piazzetta dell’Annunziata with the crown of balloons to entrust our humble prayers to her Jesus sheet.
9.15 pm: third moment of veneration with fireworks to show the Heavenly Mother our joy and devotion for her ascent to heaven with Her Son Jesus. After the fires comes the moment of celebration with music and chews. To all of you I wish you a very happy feast of the Assumption and mid-August.
