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.

Divine Mercy Sunday: April 29
The feast of Divine Mercy is the Sunday after Easter. Anyone who attends that Mass that day, receives Holy Communion, and has gone to the Sacrament of Reconcil-iation 20 days prior to or after the feast receives total re-mission of all punishment due to sin. Jesus said to Sister Faustina, “Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests will recommend it to sinners as a last hope. Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will receive Grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in My Mercy.” Pamphlets with the Novena and the Chaplet are in the back of the church.
Consecration to Jesus through Mary
The Flame of Love cenacle will begin 33 days of special prayers to prepare for total consecration to Mary begin-ning Sunday, April 28 and ending Friday, May 31.

The group meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:15 PM in the Mary Chapel for the Rosary and discussion. If you would like to make the Consecration, contact Janice Bauer at 215.364.1378 or JBauer49@verizon.net for more infor-mation and a copy of the book.
