Evenings of Faith   

Every Wednesday during Lent we will have Mass at 6:00pm, followed by a Lenten meal in the Parish Hall, and then a speaker from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. On Wednesday Februray 21, Michael McGillicuddy, a social worker, will talk about "Healing the Divisions in Church and Society." What can we as Catholics do to untie the knots of division and rediscover what binds us together?  Learn more about our Lenten series and reserve your place for a meal preceeding the lecture here.

Baptism Preparation Session  

The next preparation session for parents and godparents of infants to be baptized is Monday March 12 from 7:00 to 8:15pm in the Rectory. This is for first time parents and for those who have never before attended a preparation session. Call the parish office to register. Baptisms are normally scheduled for the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 1:15pm and on the first weekend of the month during Mass. It is not necessary to wait for the baby to be born to attend a preparation session. More here

An Extra Hour For Lent  

Join Fr. Doyle in the Parish Hall following the 7:30 Mass on the Saturdays of Lent for coffee and conversation about the church (your questions, your issues, your topics).

Assisted Listening Devices  

Assumption now has wireless assisted listening devices. One kind is appropriate for those with telecoil-equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants and one for those simply looking for hearing assistance. If you wish to use one of these devices, please come to the sacristy at least five minutes before Mass.
