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.

Parish Food Pantry
Please help us restock our food pantry with the following items: oatmeal, hot cereal packs, jelly/jams, pancake mix, Spam, Vienna sausage, canned chicken, creamy chicken or mushroom soups, crackers, saltines, tortilla chips, sandwich crackers, fruit juice, fruit cups, and hot cocoa. Feel free to bring it with you to Mass and hand it to one of our ushers or place it in the hallway by the cooler. We would like to express our appreciation in advance for the contributions from our parishioners, so we can help our neighbors.
Adult Altar Servers Wanted
Although new student-age altar servers are always welcome, we are looking for a few adult parishioners who have an interest in becoming an adult altar server at Assumption BVM. There is a particular need for servers to assist the priest and deacon at Sunday Masses. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our New Guide Book & Directory is Here!
