Assumption Church, located in the heart of Peekskill, has been serving God's people since 1859. As a Catholic community united by faith in Jesus Christ, We are called to proclaim the kingdom of God. Nourished by the Holy Eucharist and the Gospel, our parish strives to reflect Christ’s light to the world through worship, education and service.
THE FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, A HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION
Inasmuch as Mary, under the title of the Immaculate Conception, is patroness of the Church in the United States, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 is always observed as a Holy Day of Obligation. Assumption will celebrate this Solemnity this week as follows: 5:30 pm – Wednesday, December 7 (Vigil Mass) 6:45 am – Thursday, December 8 10:00 am – Thursday, December 8 7:30 pm – Thursday, December 8 (Spanish Mass)
NATIONAL NIGHT OF PRAYER FOR LIFE
The evening of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (Thursday, December 8) has been designated the National Night of Prayer for Life, whose purpose is to unite the prayers of all Catholics throughout the nation in an effort to bring the world back to Christ and put an end to abortion. Please join us in the Church from 9:00 pm through midnight this Thursday as we pray that God’s blessings of life and religious liberty will be fully realized.
FILLING THE RAFTERS WITH A JOYOUS SOUND!
