To celebrate our sestercentennial of Assumption Parish, Biblioasis – the publishing company based in Walkerville – has decided to commission a book about US!

It will be similar to the popular “From the Vault” series that shows pictures of Windsor’s past as captured by The Windsor Star.

While the Assumption Parish book will certainly feature pictures of our church buildings, the focus will be on the wonderful people who belong to this parish. Many families have been part of Assumption for generations.

What we’re looking for is your pictures of life at Assumption. It could be a parish dinner; a first communion mass, or even a something from the May Day parade. Everything is valuable!

If you have photos you’d be willing to share with us, please contact the parish office as soon as possible.

Assumption Parish has been asked to join in this years City of Windsor birthday celebration on Saturday May 20th.

The day starts with the Mayors Walk leaving from Assumption Park at 10am heading to Dieppe Gardens.

Following the walk, there will be the birthday celebration in the Vision Corridor (Located next to the Art Gallery) from 12pm to 4pm.

Our parish will have a booth and we’re looking for volunteers to hand out materials and talk about our parish and our 250th.

If you would like to join the walk or help at our booth, you can sign up at the Welcome Desk at the church entrance. We’re encouraging everyone to join in this walk – come and represent Assumption!

Each year on Palm Sunday weekend  one of our lifelong Assumption parishioners has blessed our Parish for many years with her gifts and talents, Bernadette (Berny) Lesperance.

Berny is offering to teach palm weaving after the 11:00am mass on Palm Sunday.  If you are interested in learning how to weave palms you are invited to go downstairs after Mass.

 

 

 

The post-weekend phase of Retrouvaille is as crucial to the healing of a troubled marriage as the initial weekend experience. During the post-weekend sessions, the weekend technique is further developed and  combined with additional tools to explore other areas of the marriage relationship.
