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

Pastor

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

Blessing of the Animals

Church of the Assumption celebrated St. Francis of Assisi’s feast day – October 4th – with a Blessing of Animals by Fr. Augustine. St. Francis loved all of creation and viewed all of creation as a gift from God to be appreciated and cared for. During the Blessing of the Animals, the celebrant prays the following prayer:“Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless this pet. By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures. Amen.”  May we always appreciate all of creation and never take for granted the beauty of God’s gift. Click here to view more photos of the blessing.
