OUR RETURN TO PUBLIC WORSHIP AT SAINT MARY OF THE ASSUMPTION

Public worship will resume on Pentecost for all three Masses. Bishop Brennan and Fr. Eilerman encourage those with existing health issues and those 70 or older to continue to stay home. Bishop Brennan dispenses the faithful from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass until 13 September.

Receiving Holy Communion

Watch the video to see a religious demonstrate how to receive holy Communion. Receive Communion with your mask on; step to the side; remove your mask and communicate; then replace your mask.

Holy Mass from St. Mary of the Assumption

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.
