Charismatic Prayer Group

The Assumption Charismatic Prayer Group has been meeting every Monday evening since 1973 to offer praise, thanksgiving and petitions to our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The purpose of our prayer meeting is to seek a close personal relationship with Jesus and experience the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives in a deeper way. The word “charismatic” refers to the charisms or gifts of the Holy Spirit which we prayerfully seek through praise, both verbally and in song, scripture reading, sharing of answered prayer, prophecy and petition. Some of our members have been involved for over forty years and have experienced many answers to prayer and personal transformation. We meet every Monday evening at 7:15 in the Rectory Meeting Room. If you have any questions, contact Jean Ambs at 215-355-4974.

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration is held every Tuesday, beginning immediately after the 8:30 a.m. Mass and concluding at 6:45 p.m. with Evening Prayer from “The Liturgy of the Hours” followed by Benediction. Stop in for a visit any time. Better still, consider signing up for a holy hour of personal prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Bring your needs to the Lord! For more information contact Deacon Eric at 215-357-1221, ext. 24, or email deaconeric.abvm@gmail.com

Assumption B.V.M.Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic organization founded by the Servant of God, Frank Duff, in Dublin, Ireland on September 7, 1921. Long before the recognition that the laity is vital to the work of the Catholic Church after Vatican Council II, the Legion of Mary, as a lay apostolic association with the approval of the Catholic Church and the intercession of Mary Immaculate, seeks the holiness of its members as they actively invite other people to holiness by doing the works assigned them by their Spiritual Director. In our parish, Our Lady of the Assumption Praesidium, the basic unit of the Legion, meets on Thursdays at 6:45 p.m. in the Mary Chapel, which is to the right of the church vestibule as you enter our church.

Currently, Father Mike Davis, Spiritual Director, asks the legionaries to visit homebound parishioners, residents of nursing homes and to bring the Pilgrim Virgin Statue to parishioners’ homes as requested. The primary purpose of the Pilgrim Virgin Statue home visitation is to help families to respond to the requests of the Blessed Mother Mary during the 1917 apparitions at Fatima: to return to God, make reparation for sins and to pray the Rosary for Peace.
