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.

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.

Catholic Social Services Bucks County
Catholic Social Services Bucks County is appealing for your help in providing assistance to those in need this Christmas and throughout the year. Because of the support of our community, CSS remains committed in living the works of Jesus by reaffirming the value of life with everyone we come in contact with. These past few months have been especially challenging for our neighbors. During this national pandemic, we continue to provide food through Mary’s Cupboard, pregnancy and parenting support, diapers and baby items through our Diaper Pantry as well as counseling and community resource referrals as needed. Our clients continue to be blessed by your prayers and donations. Looking forward, we invite you to participate in our Community Christmas Program. 
Perhaps your family or team at work can come together and help make the season a little brighter for a local Bucks County child/family! We expect that more families than in previous years will reach out on behalf of their children looking for a bit of Christmas joy… Please call 215.945.2550 and ask for the Community Christmas/Adopt a Child/Family Program. Child/family assignments will be available after November 2.

You can also help by making a monetary or gift card donation. These donations can be sent to Catholic Social Services Bucks County, 100 Levittown Parkway, Levittown, PA 19054. Gift cards from local grocery stores like Giant, ShopRite, Target and Wal-Mart allow us to assist families at Christmas and throughout the year. For those who prefer to shop, items such as diapers, wipes, infant clothing and baby toiletries are always in need. Thank you for your continued support and generosity as we work together to help our neighbors in need, especially during these challenging times. May God continue to bless you and your families! For more information, please call 215.945.2550.
