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.

Alpha at ABVM
Alpha generally have three key things in common: food, a talk, and good conversation. Food: We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other. Talk: Talks explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity. Conversation: Probably the most important part of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic and simply discuss it in a small group. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open environment.
