As you take the time to explore our website, you can draw a conclusion that we are a very active parish. Assumption BVM is a tight-knit family of faith, dedicated to our Blessed Mother, Mary. We are disciples of Jesus, who worship God and love our neighbor. As you get a “glimpse” of our many activities, I encourage and invite you to experience our family, and enhance our family by sharing your talents and gifts.

Divine Mercy Sunday is April 8th
Jesus told Sister Faustina, “I want this image to be solemnly blessed on the First Sunday after Easter; that Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy. On that day, the depths of My mercy will be open to all. Whoever will go to confession (20 days before or after) and Holy Communion on that day will receive complete forgiveness of sin and punishment. Mankind will not enjoy peace until it turns with confidence to My Mercy”. In preparation for this great feast, we can show mercy to others, pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily at 3 PM and say the novena. Pamphlets and prayer cards are available in the back of the Church.
My Parish App
In the coming weeks, Assumption BVM will launch our own app for iPhone and Android smart phones. This will allow us to better communicate with you throughout the week and keep you updated with relevant parish news or updates. Well designed and very intuitive, the app will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily Mass readings, Catholic news and prayers, convenient prayer and Confession reminders, our bulletins and much more. Our hope is that the new app will be a tool for fostering stronger parish life at Assumption BVM and better engaging the New Evangelization. Download the app today by going to myparish.com and please watch, in the coming weeks, for our official launch announcement.

Sun of Hope Orphanage Village 2018 Lenten Campaign
Our orphanage project is underway and there is still time to get involved if you haven't already done so. For those of you that have already sent in your donations, thank you! How can you help? In the back of church you will find the pictures of the thirty-two children who currently reside at the orphanage. Please look the displays over and consider sponsoring a child. You choose on the sponsor slip the amount and where you would like to help. Return the slip with your one-time donation and you will receive a picture of the child you are helping — just a little reminder that you are making a difference in the life of that little girl or little boy. If you have any questions about the project, Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Men Who Cook” at ABVM Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at 7PM in the Parish Hall. The renovations in our parish hall are well underway. We started painting the hall. The progress is slow and will take longer than expected. There are 5 people doing it when their schedule permits. The new sound system is being installed and will likely be complete when you read this. The new window treatments were ordered and should be here in about 3 weeks. The lights will be converted to LED lighting that should start soon. Tickets are available for sale in the rectory or from Bill and Rose Marie McCafferty, home #215-355-9017, cell # 215-801-6090. The tickets cost $50 each and include food, drinks, music and dancing and auction items both live and silent. It appears we will have a baseball package to auction off. This will be tickets to a game, a 2008 Waterford Crystal baseball and an autographed baseball by Shane Victorino. Take me out to the ballgame. Thank you and God bless you and yours. Father John Kelly
