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.

Family Promise of Lower Bucks

Like the Holy Family, many families in Bucks County are searching for a place to stay.  Family Promise of Lower Bucks County, which provides assistance to homeless children and their parents, is preparing  to relaunch in 2019.   Although ABVM will not be hosting guests (in the former school) until the summer two Ministerium congregations, St. Stephen’s and Linconia Tabernacle, have also agreed to be hosts, and Scottsville Methodist is continuing as a support congregation.  People who do not belong to any of the participating congregations are also welcome to become volunteers.  If you would like to learn more about Family Promise or how to begin the process of getting free clearances, go to www.fplb.org or call 215-943-0402. If you have any questions about ABVM’s participation or would like to be added to our email list so you can get information about training sessions and details about how you can help contact Rose Jacobs, r1jacobs@verizon.net; or call 215-364-8131.

Public Praying of the Holy Rosary

Our parish is sponsoring a public praying of the rosary after the 11 AM Mass on the last Sunday of the month, January 27th.  The praying of the rosary helps build the Domestic Church. The Domestic Church refers to the family, the smallest body of gathered believers in Christ. A family that prays together stays together. The Rosary will be led by members of the Flame of Love, Legion of Mary or the Knights of Columbus. There will be booklets and rosaries.  This is a great opportunity to learn to pray the rosary and make a commitment to strengthen our faith.  Thank you.
