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.

Last year Assumption parishioners provided a "first" Christmas for the children at the Sun of Hope Orphanage. This year, we would once again like to provide the children with a special Christmas and with thirteen new children, we again have the opportunity to provide a "first" Christmas experience! During the month of October, a donation box will be in the back of church. Please consider donating to our Christmas Gift Fund--any size donation is welcomed and appreciated. If paying by check, please make it payable to Assumption BVM and place in an envelope marked Christmas Gift Fund and your Name. Assumption will process your donation and in November forward the total amount collected to the Holy Spirit Sisters. The orphanage will then purchase Christmas gifts for the children. Last year's donations purchased new clothes, shoes, special treats for a Christmas Party, etc. Thank you! Lisa Shire
The Assumption Christmas Craft Fair scheduled for November 4, 2017 has been cancelled due to lack of vendors.
From November 3rd to Nov. 5th please join men from our parish and throughout the area on a weekend retreat at the Malvern Retreat House in Malvern, PA. The retreat begins with regis-tration and dinner on Friday evening, Nov. 3rd at about 6 PM. It concludes on Sunday, Nov. 5th after 11 AM Mass. In between there are many spiritual exercises, all of which are optional. These include mass each day, conferences given by the retreat director and other speakers, opportunities for confession, and private adoration. You can spend most of the time alone in peaceful reflection on the beautiful 125 acre grounds, attend all of the activities, or something in between. In any case it is a spiritually enriching experience. Each man gets his own private room and 5 meals. The cost is $245. but there is no obligation. Instead each retreatant makes a donation to offset the cost to the best of his ability; and the donation can be spread throughout the year. For those retreatants who have the ability, a donation in excess of the cost is appreciated. Please contact Kevin Flood at 215-499-4196 for more information about this particular weekend retreat or other retreats at Malvern. Kevin will also organize a carpool matching those who can drive and those who need a ride.
