Quote From Pope Francis

Lent is the “favorable time” to return to what is essential, to divest ourselves of all that weighs us down, to be reconciled with God, and to rekindle the fire of the Holy Spirit hidden beneath the ashes of our frail humanity.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul Assumption Conference Bundle Sunday

North Parking Lot

Sunday, March 19



The next Bundle Sunday will be in the North Parking Lot on Sunday, March 19th from 8am – 1pm.  Clean out your clutter and put it to good use by donating it to our Thrift Store for someone who needs it!  Stop by after Mass on 3/19 and drop off your goods.  We’ll even help unload your car!

We are looking for clothing, shoes, outer wear and gently used household goods.  Items must be in working condition and be boxed or bagged.  Our drivers unload the trucks at the Thrift Store dock and can’t really work with piles of clothes and loose items.  Please do not bring furniture or other large items.  To donate bulky items please call (800) 974-3571 to schedule a pickup.

We thank you in advance for your generous support!

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

Fridays in Lent

Beginning February 24

During Lent, we will have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament all day after the 8:15AM Mass until Stations of the Cross at 6:30PM.

“I encourage Christians regularly to visit Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament, for we are all called to abide in the presence of God. In contemplation, Christians will perceive ever more profoundly the mystery at the heart of Christian life.” Saint John Paul II .

When we do this, we are in His Real Presence, able to speak with Him in our mind and our heart.
