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.
Anointing of the Sick
There will be a communal celebration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick during weekend Masses October 16–17. All are encouraged to join this special prayer by ‘coming forward’ to be anointed and/or by sharing prayer with and for those who do.
This is also an opportunity to invite (and bring) parishioners who may not be able to join us regularly because of their age or infirmity to come and be anointed, prayed over and participate in both Eucharist and this special sacrament of grace, strength and God’s healing love seeking health, hope and comfort as we deal with our various ailments, diseases or impairments.
Jesus, as the Gospels relate, shared God’s healing Love here with us on earth and as the Body of Christ here today, we continue to turn to God in prayer seeking healing, comfort and strength. The Sacrament of the Sick provides a special opportunity to pray our faith in the God who has promised to be always near, always listening and always offering Grace and hope to share.
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.
