How far would you go to find the Christ Child?

Family Fun! A manger with baby Jesus has been lost. Just as the Three Wise Men followed a star to Bethlehem, you must follow the clues to find the cradle of Our Lord. It will be moved to three separate outdoor locations within Midland. The clues will first lead you to a location and then to a specific area in which to search. You have from December 25th until January 10th to travel to these places, locate the baby Jesus, and say the special prayer found at each location.

January 6–10

Location: See the Catechism of The Catholic Church paragraph #966
Specific Area: The Labyrinth of Contemplation

Enjoy!

The Prayer Committee ABVM

Welcome to Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish

We are a Catholic community of welcome and warmth sharing growth as we seek to develop as disciples of Jesus using the four pillars of Christian discipleship: Community, Message, Worship, and Service.

  1. Community - Created for and called to spreading God's love and mercy throughout parish family and surrounding community through spiritual and social opportunities,

  2. Message - Sharing the Good News of God's Love, mercy and redemption to all through Faith Adult, Faith Youth Ministry, Faith Children, and Sacramental Preparation,

  3. Worship - Gathering to gratefully share prayer as we participate in the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist,

  4. Christian Service - Using the gifts God has entrusted to us to serve God by helping those in need.

...and Jesus said, "Come."'

Here's a look at the precautions and procedures in place at Assumption to keep us all safe and healthy while we attend Mass.

For about 8 weeks we've been gathering in response to Christ's invitation for Eucharist. Many have understandably opted to not come, but we've done quite a bit so we can both worship and stay healthy. Check out the changes at our shared Assumption church home.

Thank You, Phil!

Grateful farewell to our friend and fellow parishioner ‘Photo Phil’ (and Connie, too). Going through things at my mom’s house, we’ve found many photos, prompting memories—and some questions: “Who’s that?” Like any family, we sought to preserve moments and prompt memories by taking pictures.

For many years, PHIL WALENGA has served our parish family by taking photos of people, events and many of our Sacramental celebrations! Phil has generously shared his time, his passion, his expertise and his equipment as he has served our faith family in this way. More recently, Phil has also aided in our online presence and parish website.

Now, Phil and Connie are moving to be closer to family and we bid a grateful farewell to them as well as best wishes for even more memories as we here at Assumption will treasure the photographic record of our ‘family life’ that he leaves as part of his legacy. Thanks, Phil!
