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.

Catechists Needed

We are in need of catechists for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade classes. We meet right after Sunday Mass until 12:00pm.

Please consider joining our team and you will be provided with the lessons and books needed to teach faith formation classes. They are easy to follow scripted page by page lessons.

You will have fun including art, music, videos, and discussion from a child’s point of view. We will be having a family event monthly, that you will not have to prepare for.

Be prepared to smile and laugh with our littles as you begin a rewarding adventure as a catechist. Without you, we will be unable to offer age appropriate grade level faith formation classes.

Please consider your calling as a catechist. We look forward to working with you!

For more information, contact Amy Wilkins, Children’s Faith Formation Coordinator.

No Phishing!

A few parishioners have reported again getting email asking for gift cards. The messages appear to come from Father Joe.

These messages are not genuine—do not respond!

If you have any questions, call the parish offices using the phone number published on this site and not from the message itself.

Please be vigilant!
