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.

Our Seminarian, Brandon Schmidt
Upon his graduation on May 17, Brandon Schmidt has completed five of nine years of formation before his Ordination to the Priesthood in May of 2027, following Ordination to the Diaconate in May of 2026. A proven leader in our parish and in the seminary community, Brandon received two awards: The St. John Neumann Award for Promoting Fraternity in the College Seminary and the Monsignor Vincent L. Burns Award for Excellence in Spanish. I am not surprised by Brandon's accomplishments, as he and his sisters Holly and Carly are nurtured by their parents, Adam and Kelley. Looking forward to calling Brandon a brother priest.
Use of Convent Side Parking Lot
The church parking lot off Bristol Road may be used, as there is need for more parking as more of our parishioners are coming to Mass. While the lot is not yet striped since its repaving, please feel free to use it, as our neighbors on Meadowbrook Road are inconvenienced when their driveways are blocked by vehicles parked along that road. As a security measure, the church entrance from this parking lot will be locked ten minutes after Mass begins, while the locked doors may be opened from the inside should individuals need to exit. I look forward to seeing you at weekend Masses, and am elated by your participation.

The Knights of Columbus will participate in the Philadelphia March for Life on June 24. The day starts at 9am with Mass at the Cathedral and ends with a Rally at Independence Mall.
