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.
Community - Created for and called to spreading God's love and mercy throughout parish family and surrounding community through spiritual and social opportunities,
Worship - Gathering to gratefully share prayer as we participate in the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist,
Christian Service - Using the gifts God has entrusted to us to serve God by helping those in need.
September is Paper Products Collection Month
In addition to our regular Food Pantry collection this month, you are asked to donate paper products (paper towels, toilet papers, etc.) since such items are not covered by food stamps and often are not available in food pantries. Collection of your donations will be the weekend of September 25–26 and may be placed in the bin in the gathering space.
Thank you for your donations!

Pray the Rosary in October
For the benefit of all, the Knights of Columbus will be leading the praying of the Rosary every Saturday in October starting at 4:00pm.
The Knights of Columbus have long had a history of being avid proponents of the power of praying the Rosary. It is telling that upon making their First-Degree Exemplification, the new Knight is entrusted with a Rosary with the Emblem of the Order. The Knights are then charged to carry with us and use it daily, not unlike many religious, who always carry a Rosary with them.
We hope to see you there, but, more importantly, we hope to hear you pray with us, as this prayer is even more beautiful when many voices pray it together.
