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.

Rally For Life 2021
The parish bus trip to Washington, DC for the March for Life event on January 29 has been cancelled.
In lieu of attending the Washington trip, Assumption parish will have its own March for Life. On January 29, the Knights of Columbus will sponsor an 8:30 am at Church. After Mass, we will march around the parking lot (weather permitting) and stop at the prayer garden. The Holy Family statue will be displayed at the prayer garden and Father will give a blessing.
Those who cannot march, can remain in Church until the marchers return to Church. We will then say a rosary using Father Frank Pavone’s Priest for Life meditations. All are welcome.
