Welcome to our Catholic Community of Celebration Service and Growth
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish Midland

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.

Three Events - Share Gifts for Growing our Faith this Autumn

My name is Matt Glaccum. One of the ways I have found to give back to the community over the past five years is to work in the parish garden. I am proof that you don’t need to be a master gardener to do so! The only qualification is a willingness to put in the time and effort when you can to help bring the Lord’s bounty to those who need it (such as by tilling the soil, pulling weeds or tending the plants).

The produce from the garden goes to Hidden Harvest and others to help get it where it is needed the most.

Helping others while enjoying the beauty of His creation in the green that grows–with the fellowship of like-minded folks, a wonderful way to take in the cool of the morning or the ending of the day.

Below are some upcoming Christian Service opportunities and reports.

Meeting minutes.

Assumption Garden Update

Saturday morning, there was a tremendous turnout of volunteers to help plant the church garden. Thanks to all of you for making this event happen in between rains. Several of the group helped with the installation of the pole system for growing pole beans this year. We are looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Watch for further updates.
