Virgin Mary ABVM Feasterville

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.

Reverend Mike Davis

Society of St Vincent dePaul - ABVM Conference

The members of the ABVM conference of the SOCIETY OF ST VINCENT DE PAUL hope that you had a Happy New Year. This is a time when many of us like to give gifts to people we know and love, as well as charities that can help needy families that we do not know. Please consider dropping donations to the St Vincent de Paul society in the boxes mounted as you walk in the door of the church. Another idea is to buy gift cards for Giant, Acme or Walmart using the scrip envelopes; these can be filled out for SVDP and the cards will be delivered to us. The needy families thank you for your help.
