F.O.C.U.S.

What is Family F.O.C.U.S?

Families of young children can sometimes struggle with the day-to-day balancing act of home...work...fFAITH.  Family F.O.C.U.S. is a new social group here at St. Mary of the Assumption that "focuses" on families with young children yet welcomes and encourages ALL of the parish members to participate in the events and gatherings. We believe this is a perfect way to couple the much needed flexibility of the "on-the-go" families with younger children with those that have been long standing, supportive members of the parish.   

F- Family is the cornerstone of our parish.

O- Outstanding programs and services  provided for our families can continue to...

C- Create more Community and Fellowship.

U- Understanding that schedules change, flexibility is key and some parishioners can           pray louder than others!!

S- Sharing our faith and knowing our sacraments are the fundamental attributes that          bond us as a parish...as a FAITH Community. 

Children Mass

The Third Sunday of every month

Family Mass coincides with the PREP Family Catechesis meetings.  

Children love to be able to SEE everything...they are on the shorter side so it makes sense.  So, during this Mass, families of young children are encouraged to sit towards the front of the church in the designated pews. The Homilist for the Mass might take time to come off of the altar to speak directly to the children. This is a great opportunity for children to see and hear exactly what happens during Mass. Please take time after Mass to discuss what your child(ren) saw or heard and feel free to consult with any of the Priest, Deacons or Staff members if there are questions you weren't able to answer...after all, you're never too old or too young to learn more about your faith.

This is a wish list item.
