Free Parking During Construction

Parking at Assumption is still free. It is just located behind the church instead of next to the church. For Mass and other church activities, park at Martparc at Orleans and Hubbard. Bring the parking ticket that you receive when you enter the garage to church. We will place a validation sticker on the ticket that provides you with two hours free parking from the time you entered the parking garage. Our office is now located at 351 W. Hubbard, Suite 401.

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 September to May. For more information, contact Fr. Joe. An information session will be held on August 28 at 11:30am in the Parish Hall.
