Middelburg – Our Lady Assumed


A bit of history

In 1952 - A church was built in the township at Middelburg and consecrated by bishop Luck.

The Patronal Feast: Assumption of Mary - August 15

About the Patron of the parish

By the Feast of the Assumption, the Church not only enables us to render due honor to Mary for her part in the Redemption but also reminds us of a valuable truth. Just as Mary’s Motherhood constituted a grace for the whole world, leading to its salvation through her Son, so her personal Assumption into heaven inaugurated the assumption of all mankind in God. Like Mary, we bear within our bodies – which are the temples of the Holy Spirit – the seeds of eternity. And her Assumption foreshadows our own entry, body and soul, into heaven for all eternity.
