Welcoming New Catholics

If you are an adult who has never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming Catholic, or were baptized Catholic but never made first communion and confirmation, consider being part of our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). It is a group process that meets on Sunday mornings from late summer until May. For more information, contact Fr. Joe. Sessions begin Sunday September 13.

The Pope's Encyclical

Fr. Michael Doyle, O.S.M., will offer a presentation on the Pope's recent encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si, Wednesday September 30 at 7:00pm in the Rectory Meeting Room.

Planning for the Unexpected

Assumption is hosting a financial wellness seminar Wednesday September 16 from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the Rectory Meeting Room. This workshop will focus on the ten key documents that your loved ones will need if you should become incapacitated or die suddenly. Making sure these documents are readily available will help your loved ones address the financial and emotional challenges that may arise.

Weekly sessions will begin Tuesday September 15 at 10:00am. Registration deadline is September 1. For more information or to register, contact Diane Wilder at
