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.

Summer School of Spirituality
The Summer School of Spirituality that was to be held in our school building from Monday July 10th to Thursday, July 13 has been CANCELLED. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Sunday Nursery is Going on Vacation
Due to the shortage of volunteers and since the number of children using the nursery drops in the summer months, our volunteers are being given time off! In the meantime, if anyone from 11 years old to Senior Citizens can offer an hour on Sundays from 10:45—12:00 Noon please consider joining the Childcare team in the fall. It may present a challenge to praise God.
The Little Sisters of the Poor
The little Sisters of the poor came to Philadelphia 148 years ago, 30 years after St. Jeanne Jugan took an elderly, blind and partially paralyzed beggar woman off the streets and placed her into her own bed in France. Jeanne Jugan’s vision of ‘family’ influenced her approach to the apostolate where today the Little Sisters of the Poor serve the elderly poor in 31 countries around the world in 180 homes—begging their sustenance daily. This Charism of simplicity and humility is faithfully lived out through their fourth vow of hospitality. “Making the Elderly Happy is Everything” (JJ). They will be visiting us shortly appealing for your financial assistance to support their work. Your support is GREATLY APPRECIATED and is God’s tangible providential assistance to the poor.
During the 8 AM Mass on July 2nd, we will have the joy of Baptizing Rowan Hamill.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our successful Lenten Campaign Picture Distribution. The total funds raised will be published in the coming weeks.

Also, if you did not supply an email address on your Donor Card, please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Providing your email address will ensure that you receive emails with pictures, drawings and news from the orphanage.
