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.

Community Shred Day
It's Spring! Time to get rid of all those old tax returns and documents cluttering up your home. Simply stop by on Saturday, April 6th, with your documents, at Assumption B.V.M. Church from 9 AM to 12 Noon. Secured Document Destruction will be there waiting to shred private documents as you watch, into indiscernible bits of paper. Donations welcomed.

Sun of Hope Orphanage Village 2019 Lenten Campaign
The orphanage, founded by our very own Holy Spirit Sisters for their 50th Anniversary, is located in Tanzania. The orphanage currently houses and educates over forty children. The plan is to successfully prepare these children for secondary school, which is a long shot for most Tanzanian children. How can you help? 1. In the back of church you will see pictures of the children who currently reside at the orphanage. 2. Please look the pictures over and decide which child you would like to sponsor. 3. Take the sponsor form home and fill it out -- you choose the amount you would like to donate and 100% of your donation will go to material, stationary and nutritional items that the children need. Place the completed form with your one-time donation in an envelope. 4. Place the completed form with your donation in an envelope and place it in the box in the entrance of the church until April 28th. 5. After the campaign is over, you will receive a picture of the child you are helping, just a little reminder that you are making a difference in the life of that little girl or little boy. If you have any questions about the project, please email email@example.com THANK YOU!

Our parish, led by the Knights of Columbus, will sponsor a public praying of the rosary after the 11 AM Mass on the 5th Sunday of the month. The next rosary will take place on Sunday March 31st. 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. 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.
