ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
We, the people of The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Roman Catholic Parish, accept the responsibility and challenge for the mission of Jesus to the Catholic Church "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."

From the desk of Reverend Jose Maria A. Corvera
Dear Parishioners of Assumption Parish,
I am pleased to announce to you that our parish will reopen on August 15, 2020 at 5:00 PM for the Vigil Mass where we will celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Our Mass schedule will remain as before for summer hours: 5:00 PM- Saturdays; 7:30 AM & 9:30 Am on Sundays. The confession schedule and location remains as previously published.
There is one significant change to our sacramental processes: Distribution of Holy Communion will occur after the faithful are sent forth after the Mass concludes. Ministers of Holy Communion will be posted out doors by the palm trees. You may receive Holy Communion on the palm of your hand as you leave the church.
Holy Communion will be offered to those vulnerable persons who could not physically attend Mass right after each Mass concludes and the Mass attendees have been given Holy Communion. The Mass typically takes about 35-40 minutes to complete. We will have a Minister of Holy Communion posted to offer Holy Communion until 6:10pm on Saturdays, 8:40am and 10:40am on Sundays. That should give at least a 20 minute window of time from the conclusion of Mass for folks to come and receive the Eucharist.
Please be reminded to observe 6ft social distancing at all times and remember that the wearing of face masks is mandatory.

What about Children who are 18 Years of Age or Older? Children are considered members with their parents until they turn 18 years old. Once they are 18, it is their own responsibility to register as a member independent of their parents.
O Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God and Mother of humanity, we believe with all the fervor of our Faith in your triumphal Assumption, both body and soul, into Heaven, where you are acclaimed as Queen by all the choirs of angels and all the legions of saints. And we united with them to praise and bless the Lord who has exalted you above all other pure creatures, and to offer you the tribute of our devotion and our love. --
Venerable Pius XII
