A Message from Our Pastor

Fr.eduino Silveira

I welcome you to Our Lady of the Assumption Parish on behalf of our staff and the whole faith family.

Our Lady of the Assumption is truly a faith-filled, loving community that strives to listen and follow Jesus Christ who gathers us to share in His love and salvation.

We invite you to worship with us on a regular basis and become actively involved in the Parish. Our website includes information about our Mass times as well as ways you may become Stewards of your Time, Treasure and Talents. We hope you will take some time to explore our site and ask that you contact the Parish Office if you would like more information on any of the items presented. Read More

We will distribute Holy Communion outside at the main doors of the church (Cottage side) for approximately 15 minutes after each weekend Mass. Please arrive at the church as soon as possible after the Mass concludes, which is about 45-50 minutes after the Mass start time.

The Sunday 7:30 Mass is cancelled at this time.  Communion will be distributed at the church from 7:30 - 8:00 pm Sunday evenings.

The following diocesan and county guidelines are still in place:

  • Seating is outdoors only.  Limited outdoor seating is available in front of the church under the portico. 
  • Face masks are required for those ages 2 and older unless you have a medical exemption.  We will provide a face mask for you if you need one.
  • We will continue to collect information for contact tracing purposes.
  • Use hand sanitizer.  You are also encouraged to bring personal hand sanitizer with you.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least six feet when seated and when in line to receive communion.  Families may sit together.
  • The congregation is asked to not sing or chant during the Mass.  
  • Wear your face mask and maintain physical distancing of six feet while in line to receive Holy Communion.  You are encouraged to receive in the hand.  Upon receiving the Body of Christ, step to one side and consume.
  • Please minimize socializing after Mass.  Wear your mask and maintain physical distancing when talking to others.  
  • If you are sick or feel unwell, please stay home.  Dispensation from Mass is still in effect for all of the faithful.

Thank you for following the diocesan and county guidelines, which allow us to to have the public celebration of the Mass.

Essentially, being Catholic is a heavenly gift intended to allow us to become fully human, fully alive, fully invested with the beauty of our awesome God!
