Mission For The Church Alive! 

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 Mass Intention Book is open. We are accepting dates, but we cannot guarantee the time the mass will be said. Holy days are not available at this time. Offering Mass for a special Intention is a long-standing tradition in the Catholic Church. It is usually considered that special graces are obtained for whom the Mass is said. Masses are offered for many reasons, for the souls in purgatory, in remembrance for someone who is deceased, or in honor of a birthday. If you would like to have a Mass said for someone, come to the Parish Office. The customary stipend is $10 and it signifies the sacrificial nature of giving of something of yourself to associate more intimately with Christ who offers himself in the Eucharist. 

Regional Catholic School

Blessed Trinity Academy is the Regional School for this area. Please visit their website by clicking here.

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. 

Bulletin via E-Mail

If you or anyone you know would like the bulletin e-mailed, please sign up by sending an e-mail with the subject line SUBSCRIBE to St. Mary’s will not sell or give out your e-mail address. You also may unsubscribe anytime – there will be directions with each e-mail. 

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.
