Dear Friends,
Welcome to our beautiful corner of the world! – to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Truckee, California, and Our Lady of the Lake Mission Church in Kings Beach, California. This is a very exciting time to be part of the parish as we continue to grow and bring inspired people together to respond to the ever-growing needs of our diverse community.
Our parish population comprises Anglos and Hispanics, with a vibrant mix of retired people, active working men and women, and young families. The parish is enriched also by the presence of many part-time residents and numerous visitors throughout the year.
Since the parish was established in 1869, countless men and women have labored in this part of the Lord’s vineyard. Today, we are grateful to almighty God and proud of where we are as a Church and excited about where we are headed. It was through the support and cooperation of the people from the past and present that the Church is where it is now. Your generosity and continued support will help shape the future of our parish and help pave our way into tomorrow.
May our good Lord continue to bless you and your family abundantly and may our Blessed Mother be your inspiration as you continue to do God’s will.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Vincent R. Juan, JCL
