Virgin Mary

PRAISE GOD!

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.

Youth in Action

YIA now has two groups, we continue to meet on the 4th Monday evening of the month, but we also have another group that meets on the 4th Sunday of the month. Both meetings are scheduled at the same time as PREP. In September, our Monday group assembled school supplies for Valley Youth House, and the Sunday group assembled toiletries for the same organization. Miss Chris from Valley Youth House spoke with the Monday group and helped us understand how we are helping the kids there. We met again in late October when we assembled rosaries for PREP Level 1, and for the Legion of Mary. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Koob at SharonKoob@gmail.com or 610.585.0212.
