Virgin Mary

PRAISE GOD!

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.

Expectant and New Parents

Registration for your child’s Baptism should be part of the plans for your baby’s arrival. Just call the  rectory, 215-357-1221 to begin the process.  Life will only get busier once your little one arrives. If you have already been blessed with a new little one and you haven’t registered for the Baptism program, just call.  You will be sent a letter with information about the process. For whatever reason, if your child is older and has never been baptized, guess what, just call. The next Baptism Meet and Greet gathering is Tuesday, April 9th from 7 to 9 PM in the rectory meeting room. Once you receive the letter, call to schedule the parent interview which should take place before the ‘Meet and Greet’ with other couples and members of the Baptism team. Celebration of the sacrament is held every 1st and 3rd Sunday throughout the year at 12:15 PM.

Sun of Hope Orphanage

Sun of Hope Orphanage Village 2019 Lenten Campaign
Our orphanage project has been taking place for several weeks now and it is not too late to still 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 children who currently reside at the orphanage. Please look the displays over and consider sponsoring a child. You choose on the sponsor form the amount you would like to donate and 100% of your donation will go to material, stationary and nutritional items that the children need. Return the form 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 e-mail newsfromthepews@outlook.com THANK YOU!

Bingo will be held in the Assumption BVM Parish Hall on April 5th at 7 PM.  Doors will open at 6 PM.  For more information, please call Joan Corcoran at 215-953-7711.

Public Praying of the Holy Rosary

Our parish, led by the Knights of Columbus, will sponsor a public praying of the rosary after the 11 AM Mass on the 5th Sunday of the month.  The next rosary will take place on Sunday March 31st.  The praying of the rosary helps build the Domestic Church. The Domestic Church refers to the family, the smallest body of gathered believers in Christ. A family that prays together stays together.  There will be booklets and rosaries.  This is a great opportunity to learn to pray the rosary and make a commitment to strengthen our faith.
