Our faith journeys are all different. 
We've been walking together for more than 90 years.
Join us!
The Church of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady was built on the site of the present-day friary and its cornerstone laid on August 15, 1926, the feast of Our Lady of the Assumption.  Fr. Edwin Garrity, OFM, the first pastor, celebrated the opening Mass on Nov. 28, 1926.

Ninety years later, under the guidance of Fr. Richard Mucowski, OFM, pastor the Church of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady remains a vibrant and growing community dedicated to the core Franciscan values of service, humility, peacemaking, contemplation and collegiality.
​​​ All are welcome!

Food Pantry 
Due to recent water damage in our food pantry and an anticipated reduction in donations over the summer months, we are in great need of your donations.  Our complete stock of cereal, pasta, paper towels, toilet paper and tissues was destroyed.

We are also in need of soups, stews, peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce, canned meats, Dak ham, beans.  Cleaning supplies and personal care items are also greatly appreciated.

Members of the Christian Family Movement in conjunction with our Secular Franciscans who run the food pantry are sponsoring a special collection the weekend of June 24th - 25th.  Bring your donations to the Hayes Center.  If you won't be around this weekend, donations can be left in the church vestibule.

90th Anniversary
Year of Celebration Comes to Close
Although our "official" year of celebration marking the 90th anniversary of the founding of our parish came to a close on June 11th, that same spirit that brought the Assumption to 'life' continues to spark spiritual , social and ministerial growth.

Cardinal Tobin, our newly appointed Archbishop of Newark, joined us for mass and then took some time for loads of photos, a little socializing in our newly renovating parish hall and a very quick bite to eat.
