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 has scheduled a training session for new volunteers on Sunday, January 27th in the AMC room (former library) of the Assumption school building. It will last from 2 PM to approximately 5 PM, is free, and is open to anyone who is interested in helping Family Promise help homeless children and their families. Although training is required of volunteers working with the "guests", attendance does not commit people to participating. To register: https://bit.ly/2RFoKQY or contact Jessica Schwartz, Director@fplb.org; 215-943-0402. In addition to the training, volunteers who come in direct contact with guests must have child abuse and criminal clearances.

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.
