Mission For The Church Alive! 

St. Mary of the Assumption and St. Ursula are combining to form a new parish. Fr. Tim has been appointed the administrator, Fr. Ernie Strzelinski (from St. Ursula) is the parochial vicar, and Fr. Joe Luisi is a parish chaplain. Deacon Fran remains with us, as does Deacon Richard Ernst who has been the deacon at St. Ursula. We are excited to see what the future holds come October 2018! Visit for all of the new parish groupings and priest assignments. Sometimes change is thrust upon us, but how we choose to respond is up to us! 

Mass Intentions:

The 2019 book will open sometime in the fall of 2018 once the parishes are merged and a new liturgy schedule is set. As per the Diocese of Pittsburgh, in light of the On Mission for The Church Alive! initiative, Mass schedules in parishes around the Diocese of Pittsburgh are subject to change sometime after July 2018. If you have intentions scheduled after July, please be aware that the date, time, or even location are subject to change. Additionally, there is a possibility that the intention might be combined with another intention at the same Mass.

Regional Catholic School

31 Club

The 31 CLUB is a response to the Lord who asks us to pray for an increase in priestly vocations. St. Mary of the Assumption Parish is looking for one hundred people to participate in the 31 Club. In becoming a 31 Club member, you are committing to praying one Rosary, one day a month, on the same date for an increase of Priestly vocations in the Diocese. Please click here for a form, print it, and return to the rectory.

Registration – 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 monthly envelopes. 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.
