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.

The Pilgrim Virgin Mary Statue
Have you spoken to your Mother lately?  Mary, your mother, loves to hear from her children at all times of the day!  But how greatly she would love to visit you and stay with you in your home for just a week.  Just one week and your heavenly Mother and Queen will bestow great gifts on you and all your loves ones. For more information call Jesse Fruman  267-210-2718.

Religious Education Website
At the present time the Religious Education link on our parish web site is temporarily “under construction.”  The letters and forms posted on it are outdated.  Please do not refer to the Religious Education web site for information on our PREP, RCIA, and other parish educational programs. 
You can contact the Religious Education Office at 215357-3445 if you have questions or concerns.  During the summer our office in the school building is opened from 9:30 AM—12 Noon, Monday through Thursday. In addition, we can be reached via email at our NEW email address:  abvmreo18@gmail.com 
Re-Registration forms for current PREP families have been sent home with our students.  If you have not received the forms or if you have a child who will enter 1st grade in public school this September, please call the Religious Education Office at 215-357-3445 as soon as possible for a registration packet.  Please  return completed forms as soon as possible so that you will  get the August mailing.   
If you have recently moved into the parish, or if your child attends a private school and needs preparation for sacraments, please call our Office for information about our program.  We also offer a special class for older students who have not had prior religious  education and need  sacramental preparation.

Family Promise of Lower Bucks

Update
Just as getting to the Promised Land took the Israelites longer than expected, ABVM’s journey to becoming a host congregation for Family Promise of Lower Bucks (www.fplb.org) has been delayed again.  A new Executive Director will not be in place before our school building will be needed for PREP classes.  Therefore, we will not be participating in 2018.  Of course, the problem of homelessness will not disappear before next summer. When FPLB becomes operational, they will also need volunteers at their Day Center and to support other congregations.
Required clearances include: 1. Criminal History Record Check: https://epatch.state.pa.us/ (When asked for the Family Promise of Lower Bucks telephone number, enter: 215-943-0402.).  2. Child Abuse Clearance: https://www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS/Public/Home. (When asked to enter a code, leave it blank).
Finally, thanks to all who have continued to be supportive and involved, especially to the volunteers who recently helped paint and renovate the former library. Although Family Promise guests won’t be
using it this summer, our parish family will continually benefit from having this large space available for meetings and classes.  If you have any questions or would like to be added to our Family Promise email list, contact Rose Jacobs at r1jacobs@verizon.net; 215-364-8131.
