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.

Although we continue to wait for Family Promise of Lower Bucks (www.fplb.org) to finalize its plans for relaunching, any adult interested in working directly with the guest families at ABVM or their Day Center must submit a copy of a: 1) Criminal History Record Check: https//epatch.state.pa.us/. (When asked for the Family Promise of Lower Bucks phone 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).
These documents are available to volunteers for free. If you already have these clearances they need to be dated within the past 24 months.
If you’ve lived in another state in the last 10 years, you also need to do an FBI clearance, which is NOT free. https://www.pa.cogentid.com/index dpw.htm
Please put a copy of your clearances in an envelope marked, “Clearances for Family Promise. Attention Nora McDonough” and leave at the rectory. If you have any questions or would like more information contact Rose Jacobs firstname.lastname@example.org, 215-364-8131.
Public Praying of the Holy Rosary
Our parish is sponsoring a public rosary in the church after the 11 AM Mass on the last Sunday of each month. 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. The Rosary will be led by members of the Flame of Love, Legion of Mary or the Knights of Columbus. 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. The next Public Praying in the church will be on June 24th.
