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.
Reverend Mike Davis
Live Streaming of the Mass
Check out and share our live stream Mass every weekend. We stream the Saturday, 5:00pm Mass, when circumstances permit. Otherwise, we will stream the Sunday, 11am Mass, if we are able.
Altar Servers Needed
We are looking for adult parishioners who are interested in becoming altar servers. There is a particular need of assistance at daytime funerals, so this position is ideal for a retired person or someone with a flexible work schedule. A stipend is provided. Individualized training will be provided as your needs require. Please consider helping with this vital ministry at our parish. For more information, contact Deacon Eric at 215.357.1221 Ext. 24 or email@example.com

Help provide homecooked meals to neighbors in need! Consider putting aside an extra dinner or soup portion, freeze it and then bring it to a weekend Mass. An usher will ensure they go into the parish freezer. From there, meals are taken to the Caring for Friends (formerly Aid for Friends) headquarters and distributed to food insecure and homebound clients in the greater Philadelphia area. Foil meal containers and soup containers are available in the cabinet in the hallway near the Sunday nursery.
WOW, what a great turnout for our last bingo night!!! It was great to see so many new faces and a lot of our regulars. February 10 is our next bingo night and we hope we will see everyone again. Feel free to bring a friend, we still have plenty of room. Where else can you go for $10 and have fun? Remember doors open at 6:00 pm and bingo starts at 7:00 pm. Kitchen will be open or bring your own. Dress in green for our Eagles if you can. Thanks to all our volunteers who help.
