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.

FOLLOW ME
Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John Being Catholic takes more than simply believing in God or doing what he asks of us. Jesus wants you to be more than just a believer - he wants you to be his disciple and friend. To help you answer this call to deeper friendship with Christ, Assumption BVM Parish will begin FOLLOW ME: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John on Thursday, October 5th at 7 PM in the Parish hall. FOLLOW ME invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will learn what it takes to follow him. You will experience the joy of divine friendship, and you will see how God - and only God - can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart. Participants of Follow Me will receive a workbook and will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship. The eight 30-minute videos, presented by Dr. Edward Sri, will guide you through the Gospel of John. Dr. Sri will explain how Christ’s encounters with others in the Gospel are examples of how he lovingly and persistently calls each of us to a more intimate and life-changing relationship with him. You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help us to grow in fellowship as a parish as we grow closer to Christ together. Registration Forms can be found in the pamphlet rack in the vestibule of the church or can be obtained from the rectory. The cost for this year’s study materials is $17. For more information or to register for the study, contact Deacon Bob at the rectory or via email: psykman@verizon.net. Please invite a friend and be sure to register by September 18, 2017. No previous bible study experience is required.
