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.

Revised Procedure
As discussed during the September 1 Liturgy Board meeting, our parish is going to provide a Communion station for our parishioners who want to receive Holy Communion on the tongue. Starting on September 20, an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion will be stationed at the front of the church on the Blessed Mother side and will serve the communicants who choose to receive on the tongue. Those communicants who choose to receive in the hand will go to either the priest (who will be in front on the St. Joseph side) or to the deacon (who will be at the break near the Baptismal font). For now, communicants who choose to receive on the tongue are asked to come to the priest after other communicants have received.
