Message from Fr. Vince
During this period of the COVID-19 pandemic I am compelled to reach out to our Faith Community requesting your prayers for all who are experiencing health issues, financial distress, job loss or isolation during these difficult times.
Now is the time for us to be the Church that God wants us and needs us to be. Yes we need to rely on health professionals for advice and best practices. Yet, as a Church, we need to entrust our lives to Christ and have the confidence our Faith will give us the strength to overcome the challenges confronting us today.
Here at Assumption Parish our vibrant ministries, faith formation and outreach have been severely disrupted by the pandemic. Most concerning is the significant decline in Mass attendance this summer and a concurrent reduction of 50% in parish income. This has placed a tremendous strain on our ability to operate and maintain our parish facilities.
So, today I humbly ask for your generous financial support. The pandemic has changed so much of our daily lives for the time-being. But it has not changed our need to carry on as the Assumption Parish community, supporting our Catholic faith and ministries.
For those having reduced or suspended your contributions to Assumption Parish, I respectfully ask for resumption of your ongoing support. For those blessed with financial stability at this time, please consider increasing your regular support to help us through this difficult period. And, for those presently unable to contribute, please pray for us and for a future of vibrant liturgy, ministry and service to our Community of Faith.
Online giving is now available for Assumption parishioners and visitors to make one-time & recurring donations in lieu of the support you graciously give during Mass. Please go to: https://www.myowngiving.com/Default.aspx?cid=1599 and follow a few simple steps. You may also contribute using your mobile device by downloading MyParishApp, enable location services and select Assumption Parish. Another way to give is by signing-up for credit card authorization at the office or simply mailing your donation to Assumption Parish.
May God grant us a reprieve from this terrible illness through the intercession of Our Lady of Assumption, and through Christ, Our Lord.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Rev. Vincent R. Juan, JCL
