New Life

"See? I am making all things New..." - Revelation 21:5 

We are all connected to one another. From the moment of our conception, we are ignited 

with a share in the Light of God’s Life. Through Baptism, that life is made new as we are marked as members of Christ’s own Body. In death, we believe that life is changed, not ended. In fact, we believe in life beyond this life… that our life in Christ’s love lasts forever.

As Christians, we are committed to supporting one another in our faith journeys. We welcome the new life that comes into our faith community through Baptism, and we travel with one another in faith through the mystery of dying and death, with unstoppable hope in the New Life of Resurrection.

This is why the grand Paschal candle, which greets us at the doors of church, is lit at each baptism and funeral… because by faith, we are a people born to rise. Let’s continue to pray for each other, and in a special way be mindful of parents choosing to raise their children in the faith and families grieving the loss of a loved one.

"But now, the God Who created you says to you:
'Do not be afraid. 
I have saved you; I have called you by name: you are Mine.'"

-Isaiah 43:1

Burial at Assumption


Registered parishioners are welcome to be buried in our Cemetery. Because of limited space, we do have to restrict burial to registered parishioners only. As of November 2014, we only have a limited number of single plots left. However, we have a number of niches available in our new columbarium. A single 11x11 niche can hold the cremated remains of two individuals.

If you would like to know more about being buried in our cemetery or would like to discuss options for your funeral/memorial Mass, Contact Us in the parish office. We would be privileged to lead you through all of those sacred, final arrangements.

Baptism at Assumption

As our physical life begins at the flashpoint of conception, our spiritual life in Christ begins in Baptism! Catholicism is one of many Christian religions, and one common Baptism is shared by Christians. If you have been Baptized in another Christian faith (such as Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, etc.), you do not need to be "re-Baptized" as a Catholic. To become a fully initiated Catholic, you may want to consider our RCIA program.

Practicing Catholics customarily have their children Baptized as infants. As children grow, they are instructed in the faith and receive sacraments through education at a full time Catholic school or in a Parish School of Religion program.
