Welcome to the Parish of the Assumption

It is our hope that you will find us to be a match to your needs, a source of fellowship for your journey, and a place of prayer to grow in the love of the Lord.

Message from Fr. Aggie

"All Are Welcome" - A beautiful song composed by Marty Haughen, a song we will often sing as a faith community. The words speak to us and call us to be that place. 

"Let us build a house where love can dwell and all can safely live. A place where saints and children tell how hearts learn to forgive. Built of hopes and dreams and visions, rock of faith and vault of grace; here the love of Christ shall end divisions. All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place."

We hope you feel welcome and hope you come again, again and again, as the Parish of the Assumption is truly an active, diverse Catholic community. Yes, all are welcome here.

God Bless
