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." This is accomplished by creating a Christian community of Jesus which is alive and proclaims our worship, education, and service to others.
We are, first and foremost, a Roman Catholic community of faith. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Roman Catholic Church, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
We share the Good News through our ministries. Every liturgy, every catechetical experience, every school day, every children's worship, every nursing home visit, every trip to Appalachia is an attempt to bring Jesus deeper into the hearts of people in our world.
We are truly a parish family, but we are also members of the Morristown community, the United States, and the global community. Assumption parishioners embrace the Good News though our ministries, so that we can share it with others in our world though actions, words, and expression of love towards others.
As Assumption parishioners participate in local sports, attend various schools, work in local offices, and volunteer to further community programs, we seek to share the love of God in all we do. The simple, everyday acts of love we perform here in Florence will ultimately help to change the world.
