Parish

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!

PARISH SHARE PROGRAM

We welcome the members of the Finance Council who will speak at each of the liturgies today concerning our 2015 Parish Share assessment. The actual second collection for the Parish Share Program will be taken up NEXT WEEK (3/15/15) at all the liturgies. We hope that every wage earner will take seriously the responsibility to contribute to the Parish Share Program. Each registered family will receive in this coming week a pledge card in the mail from our Office Staff. This card allows each of us to make a pledge or offer a one-time contribution. We ask that you return this card next weekend to place in the second collection, or send it back to the office some time during this next week. The assessment of our Parish Family for this year is $176,659. If we do not achieve this assessment, then we must take the difference from the regular Sunday collection and thus jeopardize the many needs of our Parish Family.

Lenten Enrichment Series

Every Tuesday evening in Lent at 7:00 pm will enhance your journey to having a closer relationship with Christ. March 10, 2015 will have a Taize Prayer Service with Father Robert Fleckenstein, the Parochial Vicar at St. Teresa of Avila Parish. March 17, 2015 begins with Liturgy and then there will be a talk with Father Aaron Buzzelli from St. Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe. March 24, 2015 will be a Communal Reconciliation Service with visiting priests, as well as ones from St. Mary’s.

Teaching Liturgy Homily

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.
