Media Outreach Ministry Needs You!

Masses are livestreamed each week for those who are unable to join the Assumption faith community in person. This technology also provides us the ability to livestream other events that occur throughout the church year.

There is a need for Media Outreach Ministers.  This invitation is open to anyone 4th grade and up. No previous knowledge and skills are required; training will be provided.

If you are interested in this ministry or have any questions, please contact Max Schneider by stopping by the Media Outreach Ministry room (the former cry room) any Sunday before or after Mass, or by email at maxschneider@att.net. 

Youth Protection

To foster and maintain an atmosphere of trust and safety in its ministry to minors, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish follows the Standards of Ministerial Behavior for Those Working with Children and Young People, established by the Diocese of Saginaw.  We will set appropriate boundaries to assure a safe place for our children and young people in all church ministries and programs.  For further information and full documentations of these Standards of Behavior, please visit the Diocese of Saginaw website

Parental role

226. The witness of Christian life given by parents in the family comes to children with tenderness and parental respect. Children thus perceive and joyously live the closeness of God and of Jesus made manifest by their parents in such a way that this first Christian experience frequently leaves decisive traces which last throughout life. This childhood religious awakening which takes place in the family is irreplaceable. It is consolidated when, on the occasion of certain family events and festivities, "care is taken to explain in the home the Christian or religious content of these events." It is deepened all the more when parents comment on the more methodical catechesis which their children later receive in the Christian community and help them to appropriate it. Indeed, "family catechesis precedes ... accompanies and enriches all forms of catechesis."  (General Directory for Catechesis)
