Who We Are
The Roman Catholic Parish of the Assumption is the newly merged faith community that was created from the original parishes of St Charles Borromeo, St Joseph, St Mary and the Mission Chapel of the Nativity. Our parish is comprised of the gift of faith, and witness of these communities from their foundation to the present day.
We are the total sum of their efforts, their belief and their living faith passed down to us.The true identity of the Parish of the Assumption is not its many campuses, buildings or materials from which they were built. The true identity of The Parish of the Assumption is the Body of Christ that gathers every week. It is the people who create its life and energy, offer its expressions of faith and who serve to live out the Gospel mission given to us by Christ. We are a parish community of approximately 3,000 families, who come together from the Dover, Barrington and surrounding region.
We are a parish that consists of members of all ages. We are a growing community that offers a diversity of prayer and worship experiences, where parishioners bring their own unique experiences of faith to life. The people of The Parish of the Assumption are dependent on one another: to provide not only the obvious financial support of our parish, but more importantly, to support each other in drawing closer to Christ. If you are in the area, come join us for worship and prayer. If you’re moving to the area, consider making adding your gifts and talent to the community of the Parish of the Assumption.
