We Have Reached Our Goal!

We have reached our $300,000 goal! Thank you to everyone who has contributed. If you would still like to contribute to this fund for future expenses, we would value having a contingency fund set aside for the gym/parish hall.

A Thank You Wall

We will be putting up an acknowledgment wall to thank everyone who has donated towards this much-needed project. You should be receiving a letter from us in the next few weeks regarding this.

Please look out for this letter and send the return slip back to us as we want to ensure that we have the correct spelling of your names and that we acknowledge your donation correctly when we list it on the wall.

Many future generations of Assumption students will benefit for your generosity.

Assummption’s original gymnasium cost was was $40,000.00 and was dedicated on September 18, 1950. The project included a kitchen in the school, so the women of the parish had a place to cook their famous Annual Spaghetti Dinner. A garage was built alongside the kitchen that eventually became the cafeteria.

The history of some of our other facilities dates back to May 1962, when Fr. Julius Porcellini was pastor and our parish was celebrating it’s 50th anniversary.

We’ve grown a lot since then and are thankful for the opportunity to move into the future and continue to expand the ministry of Assumption Parish.

It will be an exciting time for us to work together as a community for the benefit of all parishioners for years to come. This is a very special place where we come to pray, find peace and celebrate with our friends and family. Please prayerfully consider helping Assumption in our goals to preserve and renovate our facilities for future generations to come, just as they did 65 years ago!

The Renovation Project will commence in June 2015 and be completed in 2 Phases.

It will include a much needed kitchen and cafeteria remodel!

We are also looking forward to:
