Welcome to

St. Mary of the Assumption Parish!

You are welcome to browse our site and find information on the many facets of our parish life!  Please take a look at the calendar, as well, to find out what is coming up!

Respect Life Month

Respect Life Sunday is the first Sunday of October and the month is dedicated to increasing our respect for human life from conception to natural death. We continue to make baby steps, if you will, of progress. Women are fleeing abortion evangelist Wendy Davis in Texas. More Americans are becoming skeptical of abortion as anything but a way of killing inconvenient children. States are enacting laws to protect both pregnant women and the unborn from the rapacious negligence of abortion clinics. There is a long and daunting struggle in front of us but we are winning hearts and minds and winning legislative victories. Let us continue to pray for all human life and the right of living life to its fullness!

Open School Registration

If you are looking for a quality Catholic Education, our school is top notch! You will find forms and information here.

Registration is Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
