Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, Belmont, Michigan

From Our Pastor

About a year ago, the Diocese of Grand Rapids visited Assumption and initiated a procedural review of our Parish. Over a period of seven days, Sr. Maria Serra Garcia, FSE conducted a Parish and School internal accounting controls and business operations review. We recently welcomed Sr. Maria Serra back to Assumption as she performed a follow-up to that review. I am happy to share with you that we received excellent review results. Both the Parish and School staff members are conscious of and strive to utilize best practices every day as they serve parishioners, colleagues, students, and visitors. Serving along such a dedicated team is a tremendous source of joy for me. All of us are blessed to be members of this faith community. For further information, feel free to contact either me directly or our Business Manager, Kim Summers. We welcome your feedback.

On another note, you may have noticed that we have a new, skillfully crafted cantor stand in the music area of the church.  This was made by one of our own parishioners, Dave Kommer. I am most grateful for this beautiful, handcrafted gift to Assumption Parish.  You may also have noticed that the announcements at the beginning of Mass are being said here instead of at the ambo (the main lectern in the sanctuary).  This new cantor stand allows us to reserve the ambo solely for the proclamation of Sacred Scripture, giving of homilies and offering up of our prayers while parish business can be addressed separately at the cantor stand.

Fr. Tony

Thank You For Your Generosity!
