Dear Parish Family,
On August 9, after arriving from Lourdes, France, I checked my mail. In my mail, there was a small package from the Archdiocese of Oklahoma. Before I left, I wrote a letter to Archbishop Paul Coakley (who was a former Spiritual Director of Mt. St. Mary Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD, which Fr. Augustine and I attended) to ask for some information and maybe a relic of Blessed Stanley Rother (who was a graduate from the same seminary).

The Feast of the Assumption: What a spectacular event! I would like to thank all who came and thank everyone for all the food, donations, efforts and energy. The weather was terrific, the church looked magnificent (thanks to our Seminarian Guy Dormevil), the food was over the top and there was music and more. Click here to access pictures of the event.

Dear Assumption Families and Friends:

Seminarian Guy Dormevil: Let’s wish our Seminarian Guy every blessing as he is leaving us to continue his journey to the priesthood. Guy spent the summer with us worshiping, working the the youth group and getting involved in every aspect of our parish life. He will return to his studies at Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary in the fall.

Guy came to the United States over 20 years ago and was married. He lived in Norwalk and had two children. He has always been active in church groups and activities. He applied for the program after his wife passed away. We had a farewell reception Sunday after the 10:30 Mass. Click here to view photos of the event.
