Our faith journeys are all different. 
We've been walking together for more than 90 years.
Join us!
The Church of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady was built on the site of the present-day friary and its cornerstone laid on August 15, 1926, the feast of Our Lady of the Assumption.  Fr. Edwin Garrity, OFM, the first pastor, celebrated the opening Mass on Nov. 28, 1926.

Ninety years later, under the guidance of Fr. Richard Mucowski, OFM, pastor the Church of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady remains a vibrant and growing community dedicated to the core Franciscan values of service, humility, peacemaking, contemplation and collegiality.
​​​ All are welcome!

90th Anniversary Celebration
​Spotlight on Assumption School
As we begin to wind down our year of celebration highlighting our 90 years of living and growing as a parish family, we'll share some special thoughts and photos from our past and present.  
Assumption School was a center of parish life offering not just a place for our children to be educated, but an outlet for young and old alike to gather for fun, fellowship and whatever else someone could imagine.
