    Whenever January 1 the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God) or August 15 (the Solemnity of the Assumption) or November 1 (the Solemnity of All Saints) falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, there is no requirement to attend Mass.

Guide to Receiving Holy Communion

Everyone is welcome to attend Holy Mass and the activities of the Catholic Student Union at UMass Lowell.

However, Catholics believe that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul, and divinity. If someone is not in communion with the Catholic Church the Church asks him or her to refrain from going up at Mass to receive the Eucharist because the Eucharistic communion is a sign of unity in faith.
