Details to Come!

Welcome

We welcome to Saint Mary of the Assumption those who are new to the Lancaster area and would like to join our parish church; those who are looking to return to an active practice of the Catholic faith and participation in the sacramental life; or those adults or families interested in becoming Catholic through our parish R.C.I.A. Process.

Mass and Sacraments

Join us in the celebration of the sacred liturgy at Mass or in the Sacraments, through which we worship God and are touched by the Lord in His Paschal Mystery to grow fully alive in our human nature, to be nourished and built up together as the Body of Christ, and to be sent out into the world to continue that worship in our lives to His glory.

Our Parish and History

Catholicism in Lancaster goes back to the early settlers in 1800. The people of our parish are grateful for the gift of the catholic faith given us by the Apostles and our local ancestors, we continue to live so that our actions may inspire to holiness of life the generations to follow, and continue our progress onward and upward through the years to come.

Special Upcoming Events and Calendars

Adult Faith Enrichment Series

In this 5-part DVD series, Dr. Edward Sri guides us through the last hours of Christ’s life from the Garden to Calvary. Benedict XVI invites us to think of the Passion, not just as suffering, but also as the passion of a lover. For in the cross, we see God fully revealed as “a lover with all the passion of a true love”. Join us for this series beginning in February across five Tuesday evenings from 6.30 – 8 pm. Registrations due by Monday, 3 February.
