Holy Rosary Church
For the past 114 years, the Parish of Holy Rosary has hosted the celebration of Feast of the Assumption in Cleveland’s “Little Italy” neighborhood, located on Mayfield Road near University Circle. The Assumption, a Catholic Holy Day on August 15, commemorates Mary being taken into Heaven. A solemn Mass is celebrated in the Church at 10:00 a.m., after which the statue of the Blessed Virgin is taken in procession throughout the neighborhood. During the four days of festivities, booths are set up in the Churchyard featuring Italian foods, live music and rides for young children. Independent vendors also have booths on the street. The Rosary is prayed daily at 6:00 p.m. at the shrine to Our Lady of the Assumption, located on the east side of the church. For your convenience, a Religious articles booth is located near the shrine. On the final evening of the Feast a candlelight procession is held to honor Mary. A short prayer service and fireworks conclude our tribute to God for all the good He has done through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The Feast is a celebration of the Gospel of Life, Faith and Family.
