The RCIC sessions are for children over the age of seven and teens who have not celebrated the Sacrament of Baptism, or First Eucharist and/or Confirmation and Reconciliation (Confession). We wish to assist you as you accompany your child on his/her journey of active faith and full participation in the life of the Church at Assumption BVM Parish.
Attention All Young Children Attending 11:00 a.m. Mass on Sundays: If you CAN’T read this….your parents should!!
Parents—do you know we offer nursery service during the 11:00 a.m. Mass every week (except holidays)? It’s located in the Church Activity Center…down the stairwell by the choir, through the doors & it’s located on the left hand side. So during Mass while your child is playing, drawing and able to run around, YOU can actually PRAY and do want you need to during this hour that sometimes feel like forever “with a young, active and not-so-quiet child”.
Please consider bringing your child down! And there’s more: YOU can sign up to volunteer to join the fun in the nursery once in a while if you wish! To sign up to help, go to: http://bit.ly/Sunday-Nursery PLEASE feel free to bring kids down during the 11:00 a.m. Mass on Sundays & if you have any questions, please give me a call. May God Bless you! Becky Pettit (616-365-8221)

Our blessed Mother appeared to the children at Fatima and revealed the Peace Plan from Heaven. Part of which includes this special devotion which consists of four areas:
- Recite the Rosary
- Receive Holy Communion
- Meditate for 15 minutes on the Mysteries of the Rosary. Use your own meditation or use these meditations here.
Please join us Saturday for this devotion. Reconciliation is offered from 4:00-5:00PM in the confessional. We pray a group Rosary together at 5:00PM. Stay for 5:30PM Mass to receive Holy Communion. Finally, spend 15 minutes in the privacy of your home (or stay after Mass in church) to meditate on the Mysteries of the Rosary. Complete all of the above with the intention of making reparation to our Blessed Mother and her Immaculate Heart.
Why should we practice this devotion? The Mediatrix of All Graces has promised, at the hour of death, all graces necessary for salvation to those who faithfully practice this devotion for the First Saturday of any five consecutive months. (NOTE: The Confession may be made under the usual condition of 8 days before or after Holy Communion, provided the person is not in the state of mortal sin when he receives Holy Communion.)
The first Friday, first Saturday and first Sunday of the month normally come together in the same week. The Confession good for one is good for the others. It is recommended that people receive Holy Communion in reparation on all three days, giving Our Lady a little more than she asks-and helping to make up for those who refuse to give her anything at all.
In addition to assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, receiving Holy Communion is the most perfect form of reparation that can be offered!
The Consolata Sisters invite you to experience a very unique Stations of the Cross on their grounds. It is a half-mile journey through woods and meadow. Walk in Jesus’ footsteps along the wood chip path, feel the weight of his cross, experience his falls, meet his mother and Simon and Veronica, gaze upon His cross and finally visit the empty tomb. A great teaching lesson for young children as well as adults. Come during daylight hours to 6801 Belmont Avenue. Park by Gethsemane House.
Pay your tuition at Assumption, West Catholic, Catholic Central and Assumption’s Faith Formation tuition all the while helping the Assumption Endowment Fund by buying SCRIP!
How does SCRIP work? You simply purchase gift cards at face value and use them to make your purchases (gas, groceries, clothing, restaurants and much, much more!). The vendors make a percentage donation at the time of your purchase (which ABVM Scrip tracks). 50% of the donation goes to your account and 50% is donated to the Endowment Fund. Assumption will send your accrued earnings to the designated school account bi-yearly in October and April!
