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.

St. Catherine of Siena in Advent
Retreat Day December 3, 9:00am–2:00pm
How do we prepare our hearts and households to receive the gift of Jesus anew this Christmas? How should we pray this Advent? How do we carry our needs and the needs of the world to this year’s encounter with Bethlehem?
Sr. Nancy Murray, OP, will lead reflections on these themes through her reflections on the life of St. Catherine of Siena (Sr. Nancy will be dressed and interact as the 14th century Italian saint), through times of quiet prayer, and through discussion groups.
Give yourself a break a break from the hectic busyness of Holiday preparations to go deeper into the spiritual meaning of the Advent and Christmas Seasons.
You are invited to participate in Mass at 8:00am and/or light breakfast at 8:30am.
Sr. Nancy’s reflections will begin at 9:00. Lunch will be served during the retreat.
Sign up at the Welcome Circle in the gathering space, or call the parish office to register. This will helps us plan for meals, etc.
Christ's Mission Appeal 2022
A message from Bishop Gruss
As Catholics we are called by the Lord to take responsibility for caring for our Church – to further the mission of Jesus Christ in our world, in our time. The task of caring for the Church is not limited to those within our own parish or even our own city or town. We are missioned to do good and share what we have with those who we know – and with strangers.
Christ’s Mission Appeal is the primary opportunity for Catholics throughout the Diocese of Saginaw to support one another through widespread ministries that impact all 56 of our parishes and well beyond.
All gifts, no matter the amount, touch the lives of the people we serve in our diocese. Your sacrifificial support is very much appreciated as it helps us to continue and expand the Lord’s work.
Please prayerfully consider your gift to Christ’s Mission Appeal. As always, please know of my prayers for all the faithful of the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw.
May God bless you and your families!
