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.

Trip to Italy with Fr. Mike—June 30-July 11th
Calling all 30 plus adults. Do you want to go on a trip of a lifetime? Do you always talk about wanting to go to Rome, Assisi or to see Padre Pio. Well, this trip is for you. Group trips are usually quite rushed. Our trip is uniquely different! We have a trip designed to truly take-in and experience Italy. We have daily mass, meals, and personal guides throughout. We will see so much but at a leisurely pace instead of rushing. Come to an informational meeting on Oct. 28th in the AMC (Assumption Media Center) room at 2 PM. Don’t miss this exciting event with Walking in Faith.

NOTE: Anyone who had a relative not buried from Assumption BVM Church is also cordially invited and should call the rectory with the deceased person’s name to be added to the Memorial Mass List of Deceased. If you plan to attend, please call the rectory by October 29th and tell us how many will attend. Light Hospitality will be in the hall following Mass.

MISSING BABY BOTTLES
We ask that you please look around your house for a baby bottle from the “Chance for Life Baby Bottle Project.” We are still missing close to 150 bottles. We would be extremely grateful for any returns so we do not have to purchase more next year. You can leave the bottles in the back of the church or drop them off at the rectory. No donations are necessary, simply returning any empty bottles would be an enormous help. Thank you and God bless. The Evangelization Team
