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.

  • With the great success in 2019 when we hosted the distribution truck, we are doing it again this summer. We have a lot of need in the community due to the loss of jobs, the flooding and the Pandemic.
  • We have reached and exceeded our goal for the cost of the truck and for our volunteers, THANK YOU!!!

All Volunteers: more information will be coming soon! Please contact Ann Schoren 989-751-4378 or Sharon in the office at 989-631-4447 if you have questions. Thank You, Christian Service Committee

Food Truck Parish Prayer Hear us, O Lord our God, and help us with healing love and hope. Those in need in our midst are beautiful in your eyes, O Mighty One, and You anguish at their distress as they cry to you for assistance. Let these, our fellow Children of God, not despair but put their faith in your unfailing love. May our Community of Faith answer your call for justice and shine brightly in service to all.Stirred by the spiritual gifts of compassion and generosity that you graced us with at Baptism, help us to share the bounty you have poured out upon our lives.For those that come to us seeking help, may we joyously give donations of food, money, physical labor and prayer to renew their health and to build their faith.We praise you and thank you for the opportunity to share ourselves in the lives of others, knowing that in doing so you bring sweetness into every soul.In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen. Written by Maria Dvorak

"Thank you so much to those who have already given to the fund, our parish gave $4,300. Blessings!"

Our retired diocesan priests continue to impact the lives of thousands of people each year. These men, who have dedicated their lives to the church, have very modest incomes. The diocese Priests’ Retirement Fund helps to support those priests who are currently retired and those who are now serving the Catholic Diocese in their futures.

Please carefully and prayerfully consider a donation to this fund. Envelopes for this special collection are in your regular envelope packet or you can give online.

You can also support our priests in these ways:

    • Pray for our priests
    • Make a charitable distribution from your financial portfolio
    • Consider remembering the Priests’ Retirement Fund in your estate planning

“Generous Hearts”

Our Christian Service update on our parish response to the Covid pandemic and the devastating Flood of 2020.

Through the generous monetary gifts from several parishioners that donated their stimulus checks, along with our assistance fund, we were able to help those in our parish and beyond with financial assistance that found themselves without an income during Covid. With the help of Stitch and Prayer, several hundred masks were made for our local hospital and other care facilities. And…when we thought things were looking a little better along came the Flood of 2020!! Again, proud to say Assumption Parish pulled through with “Generous Hearts.” We were able to help with financial assistance to 11 families from Assumption totaling $8,650. We also sent a $1,000 check to Fr. Dan to help his parish people of Our Lady of Grace.

Again, Stitch and Prayer made over 100 blankets and more to give to the Sanford community. Helped Open Door with two days of 500 sack lunches to bring to families displaced by the Flood waters and living in motels. These lunches were made by several of our teens and other volunteers from the parish. Also, a shout out to ALL the Assumption families that gave a helping hand to many families that needed the physical labor.

Assumption Parish always pulls through with responding to Matthew 25…For when I was hungry you gave me to eat….

Many Blessing to all of you! Christian Service Commission
