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.

...and Jesus said, "Come."'

Here's a look at the precautions and procedures in place at Assumption to keep us all safe and healthy while we attend Mass.

For about 8 weeks we've been gathering in response to Christ's invitation for Eucharist. Many have understandably opted to not come, but we've done quite a bit so we can both worship and stay healthy. Check out the changes at our shared Assumption church home.

Thank You, Phil!

Grateful farewell to our friend and fellow parishioner ‘Photo Phil’ (and Connie, too). Going through things at my mom’s house, we’ve found many photos, prompting memories—and some questions: “Who’s that?” Like any family, we sought to preserve moments and prompt memories by taking pictures.

For many years, PHIL WALENGA has served our parish family by taking photos of people, events and many of our Sacramental celebrations! Phil has generously shared his time, his passion, his expertise and his equipment as he has served our faith family in this way. More recently, Phil has also aided in our online presence and parish website.

Now, Phil and Connie are moving to be closer to family and we bid a grateful farewell to them as well as best wishes for even more memories as we here at Assumption will treasure the photographic record of our ‘family life’ that he leaves as part of his legacy. Thanks, Phil!

open door Soup Kitchen -We need you!

With the continued uncertainty of the coronavirus , many of our volunteers are unable to return to serving in our soup kitchen yet. In addition, the grab-and-go style service and extended serving hours require more hands.

In preparation for the colder days ahead, Midland's Open Door will officially move the soup kitchen service back inside the dining room on Monday, November 2, 2020. Shields have been installed and seating will be limited to 40 percent of capacity. The extended lunch hours will continue, as will the grab-and-go option for our guests who choose not to eat their meal in the dining room.

In order to maintain social distancing in the dining room, the service line has been eliminated and meals will be served to each guest, restaurant-style, once they are seated.

Please pray with us that our guests, volunteers and staff will remain healthy and safe throughout the winter season.

  • If you are healthy and feel comfortable serving, would you consider giving some of your time to serve our homeless and hungry friends at our soup kitchen?

  • To sign up or to learn more, please call Vicki at 989-835-2291.

Called to Love is the theme for our 2020-2021 Assumption BVM Faith Formation.
