Information regarding Assumption Parish and School events and services will be updated below. Please see here often for the latest information.

UPDATE from Bishop Walkowiak on Sacramental Care in Local Hospitals HERE!

NOTICE:  By order of the Diocese of Grand Rapids, all Rectory offices in the Diocese are closed. This is for the safety of our employees, their families, you and your families! If you have an emergency, please call the office at 616.361.5126 and listen to the prompts.

If you are dropping off an offertory envelope, please slip it through the slot in the door. Feel free to mail the envelopes as well to: Assumption Parish, 6369 Belmont Ave. NE, Belmont 49306.

We are working remotely and will return messages left on our voicemail within 24-48 hours.

IF you stop by and see a light on, please refrain from coming to the door. This is for your protection and ours. There ARE times we need to come in to the office to complete work that simply can’t be done remotely as the parish is still a running facility. That does not mean the office is open, however. We will follow Diocesan directives with the hope that, being separated now, we can overcome this virus and get back to our regular schedule.

Until then, please know that we are praying for you and your families and ask for you to pray for us, too! As always, Fr. Tony is celebrating a private daily Mass of our behalf. If you have any intentions you’d like him to pray for, please do not hesitate to send send an email to dcowen@abvmparish1.org.

Thank you and may the Good Lord keep you safe and healthy!
