Pastor's Message

  • Dear Friends,

    I would like to thank you for taking time to visit our Church of the Assumption website.  If you are new to our charming area, you are curious about our historical and vibrant church, searching for a place to worship and encounter Jesus Christ especially in the Blessed Sacrament, or might be interested in beginning a new life in Christ as Catholic Christian – I would like to welcome you to the Church of the Assumption here in Westport Connecticut!

    Our parish campus is always active because there is always something going on: be it Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Knights of Columbus, Parish Social and Outreach Ministry, Mary’s Mantle, Social Concerns Ministry, Bible study, Religious Education classes, Youth Ministry and the list goes on and on.  But these are not the best we have to offer.  The best that we have to offer is the true Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in the Blessed Sacrament.  We are called to know Jesus Christ and to make him known!

    If you are new to the area or looking for a church, I want to invite you to come visit and celebrate the Eucharist with us.  The parish staff and I will be happy to be of help to you in any way we can.

    Thank you again for visiting our website.  I hope to see you here this Sunday and if I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    In the Name of Jesus our Lord and Savior!


    Fr. Cyrus Bartolome


    “Come with us Mary along the way, guide every step we take.

    Bring us to Jesus your loving Son, come with us Mary come!”

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.

Parish Happenings

You may have heard that the decennial U.S. Census will be conducted this year.  Participation in the 2020 Census is ry important because it determines congressional representation, informs hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding, and provides data that will impact communities for the next decade. Church of the Assumption  and the Town of Westport understand that the U.S. Census Bureau cannot conduct the 2020 Census alone.  It depends on community involvement at every level.

Church of the Assumption is pleased to announce that we have joined the Town of Westport’s Complete Count Task Force.  The Complete Count Task Force members are volunteers committed to increasing awareness and motivating residents to respond to the 2020 Census.   As a member, it is our responsibility to keep you informed about upcoming deadlines and activities associated with the Census. Our goal is to have every Westporter counted in the 2020 Census! #Westportctcounts

Please continue following Church of the Assumption for our parish notifications, as well as periodic updates and reminder messages about the 2020 Census.

Remember –  when we all respond, we all benefit!
