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.

Wine, Cheese and More!

Are you wondering what a Director of Parish Life is? What does a Sacramental Minister do?

July 1 is quickly approaching. As we prepare to welcome John Graveline as our new Director of Parish Life and transition from having Fr. Joe serve as our full time Pastor to our Sacramental Minister, we realize people have questions about what this means. Please join us to learn more about these roles from two experienced ministers. Sr. Janet Pewoski and Fr. Bert Gohm currently serve as the Pastoral Administrator and Sacramental Minister, respectively, at St. John Vianney Parish in Saginaw. They have kindly agreed to share with us some of their experiences collaborating to minister to their parish family.

  • Monday, June 27

  • Wine and cheese beginning at 6:30pm

  • Presentation and discussion to follow

All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please sign up in the gathering space to facilitate our planning.

Synod 2023

Led by the Holy Spirit

As we continue forward on our Synod journey, we would like to thank all who participated in one of the Synod Listening Sessions held here at Assumption. The results of your input is now available. Read the full report.

Mobile Food Pantry

Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 21 for the Mobile Food Pantry at Assumption. It will take many hands to unload the pallets of food, to load grocery carts at the various food stations, and to unload the grocery carts into the cars of those in need.

Safety will be a priority. The more volunteers that we have the lighter the work and the more fun we have! Help is needed from 8:00am–12:00pm, with lunch provided following the event. You can sign up for the entire time or whatever part fits your schedule.

Sign up on the sheet at the Welcome Circle in the gathering space or contact the parish office.

Those coming for the assistance that our Mobile Food Truck offers are often also in need of personal care products, something that the Food Truck does not provide. June 4–5, 11–12, and 18–19 we will be collecting shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap and hand sanitizer.

The big bin in the gathering space will be available to accept your donations. There will also be an opportunity to offer a monetary donation as well.

2021 Christ's Mission Appeal

Christ’s Mission Appeal is upon us. This appeal is the primary way for all Catholics in the region to support the ministries of the Diocese of Saginaw.

Learn more about this year's appeal by viewing the video below.

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!
