THE NEW EVANGELIZATION--RIGHT HERE AT ASSUMPTION!
"Bring a Friend to Mass" Weekend--Nov. 1-2
Have you ever wondered how you might help to evangelize for the faith? Well, we have an opportunity for you. The Parish will celebrate All Souls Day Liturgies with "Bring a Friend to Mass." These will be "teaching" Masses where parishioners and visitors together participate in the Sacred Liturgy--the source and summit of our Christian Life. Maybe you have family or friends who stopped coming to Mass? Or people you love who do not understand what the Eucharistic Celebration is all about? Invite them so that together we can share in the sacrifice, mystery, and grace of our Risen Lord!

The Church of the Assumption is a vibrant Roman Catholic faith community in the heart of Bellingham, Washington. As Catholics, we seek to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ who is our Way, our Truth, and our Life. We continually strive to follow the example of our Blessed Mother--and Patron--who is the model of compassion and discipleship.
