WELCOME TO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC

Please refer to this website and our weekly bulletins for mass times, phone numbers, and other information. Please call or e-mail us with any questions and again, welcome!
The Church of the Assumption Parish is a Roman Catholic Christian Community in Westport Connecticut, called by Jesus Christ to know, love and serve Him. Our mission is to strive to live a full sacramental life centered on the Eucharist, committed to living and spreading the Gospel of Jesus through faithful worship, witness, education and generous stewardship.
We at the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption commit ourselves to be a guiding light of the Catholic faith recognized as a large, welcoming, generous and effective faith community.
Inspired by the holiness of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, sustained by the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the graces given in the celebration of the sacraments, we will use our gifts of time, talent and treasure to provide the services and ministries necessary to promote the Catholic faith through our commitment to educate the young, meet the spiritual and material needs of all God’s children, and to glorify the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit by our Christian example with the intercession of our patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things.
And I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

This past weekend, Fr. Cyrus announced that Deacon Bill will be moving on from Assumption Church at the end of May. He and his wife Jeanne will be relocating to Springfield, PA, a Philadelphia suburb. Actually, Deacon Bill is a native of Philadelphia where he spent the first 33 years of his life. He has been a resident of CT since 1984 living this whole time in the Town of Stratford. He was ordained to the Diaconate in June of 2004 by Bishop Lori and has faithfully served this diocese in five parish assignments during his 17 years as a Deacon. He also spent 5 years serving the Diocese of Bridgeport as Director of Parish Financial Services. It was in this position that he introduced Cloud Technology to provide accountability and transparency to parishes and schools which was the first in the nation to do so. In addition to his 48-year career in the corporate world, he spent his last 7 years as a Chaplain at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
Deacon Bill was assigned to the Assumption Church in mid-December of 2019 by Bishop Caggiano. “This decision to move closer to my family in the Philadelphia area has been one of the toughest decisions of my life. I love this parish and its people. I have been blessed to have served in the Assumption Parish because it is a strong and vibrant faith community that has weathered the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic for over the past year. I will dearly miss my pastor, the parish staff and all of the people I have come to know and love.”
He will continue his vocation to serve the people of God in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Please join the parish in bidding him a fond farewell after the 11:00 AM Mass on Sunday, May 30 where there will be a farewell reception.
