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.

Parish 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.

This Week in the Liturgical Year

Curious about Catholicism?

If you’re interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and even open to discerning becoming Catholic we’re happy to meet with you on your journey of inquiry. You might have already heard of something called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or R.C.I.A. Process that typically begins in late August. Please contact Brian McCauley (email) if you’re interested in learning more about Catholicism and potentially beginning the process to follow Jesus in His one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
