Pastor's Message

  • As we celebrate the birth of the Savior, we are called to give thanks for the many blessings we have received from God.  The star of Bethlehem is a wonderful sign of this blessing.  Whatever its form, the star reminds us of God, who caused the light to shine out of darkness and of the light which is the life of humanity. It reminds us of the promise of Abraham that his descendants would be more numerous than the stars. We are reminded of the star that pointed to the “great and heavenly light from Bethlehem’s manger shining bright.” The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    This is the message of the Christmas star, which also points to Jesus, who said, “I am the bright morning. It is the star of promise, the star of fulfillment, and the star of hope. Christmas is a Season of Blessings. The star of Bethlehem, invites us to “Come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!”

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Father Bartolome

OUR MISSION
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.

OUR VISION
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.

Parish Happenings

New Youth Choir!

We are excited to announce the establishment of a new Youth Choir. Weekly Rehearsals are on Thursdays. Click here to learn more.

Rejoice, Renew and Restore:

Money from the capital campaign is paying for the construction work on replacing the cement on the landing by the school lobby doors as well as the semi-circle and sidewalks on Burr Road from the fence line to Riverside Avenue. In front of the two pillars/lobby doors to the semi-circle a wide cement walkway with landscaping on either side is being installed. The landscaping will run from the pillars to the side door landing by the school building and will match on the opposite side in front the stone wall so it begins and ends evenly on both sides. The landing at both doors will stay the same. From the side door to the semi-circle (including in front of the stairs that lead to the lower playground near Burr Road) will also be cement. Click here to view pictures of the construction.

A special shout out to the Church of the Assumption “Ladies of the Ladle”: Michele Harding, Mary Welsch-Lehman, Katya Lebrija, Marilyn Moran and Dolores Bacharach.

On Dan Woog’s local blog“06880 Where Westport Meets the World,” longtime president and CEO of Homes with Hope, Jeff Wieser recently wrote about some “unsung heroes” – in particular some Church of the Assumption parishioners who volunteer monthly at the Gillespie Center.

The Knights of Columbus served up meals at the Thomas Merton Center: Check out the photo gallery.
