We, the parishioners of the
Church of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady Parish
 are a welcoming community of believers in Jesus Christ.    
Located in Wood Ridge, New Jersey, in the Archdiocese of Newark,
we live and celebrate the sacredness of all life
in the Franciscan tradition.

We are a community nourished in the Eucharist,
the source of our strength and unity.
Conscious of our Baptismal calling,
we reach out to serve others.  
Where there is hunger and loneliness,
where there is prejudice and injustice,
where there is strife and division,
this is where we, as a parish, are to concentrate our efforts.

  Mission Statement

​​

always be a place

of
MERCY and HOPE
where everyone is
WELCOMED
LOVED
and
FORGIVEN
